We are delighted that you would like to support the Kurt Hahn Foundation with a donation. And the tax office also welcomes your contribution: Your donation to us is tax-deductible. However, in order to do so, it must be proven in your tax return through an appropriate donation receipt.
After a change in the law in 2007, it has become even easier to deduct donations from income tax: For donations to charitable, benevolent, and religious organizations up to a donation amount of 200 EUR (until 2020) and 300 EUR (from 2021) per individual donation, the tax authorities only require a “simplified donation proof.” This means that instead of a donation receipt in an official format, a cash payment receipt, bank booking confirmation, or an online banking statement, along with a receipt from the donation recipient, are sufficient for your tax return. You can obtain a corresponding receipt from the Kurt Hahn Foundation upon request from the office.
If you donate 300 EUR or more to the Kurt Hahn Foundation, a donation receipt in the officially prescribed format is required as proof, which you will receive from our office. If you are donating 300 EUR or more to the Kurt Hahn Foundation for the first time, it may be necessary for you to provide your address to the office for the issuance of your certificate.
