If you would like to donate to the VRF from Europe then we are doing our best to ensure you are able to receive tax relief on your donation.
Sadly, most EU countries do not provide incentives for donors wanting to support a foreign beneficiary. In some countries it is possible to find a solution, but this could depend on where you actually have residency and where your assets are based.
The following organisations can help you obtain a tax deduction in respect to your gift:UK
- Charities Aid Foundation - www.cafonline.org
- Chapel & York - www.chapel-york.com
- Maecenata - www.maecenata.eu
- Community Foundation for Ireland - www.foundation.ie
- King Badouin Foundation/KBFUS - www.kbfus.org
We are trying to make it as easy as possible for European donors to help us and will update this page whenever we can with further information.
In the meantime, please contact us if you have any questions regarding donations from Europe – we really value your support and are doing all we can to help you to help us.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
