Facilitating Tax-Efficient Cross-Border Donations for European Residents

People on map

We are thrilled to share a significant development that enhances the impact of your generosity. The University of Kent has proudly partnered with Transnational Giving Europe (TGE), a network of charitable foundations across Europe dedicated to simplifying cross-border donations and optimising their tax efficiency.

Empowering Giving Across Borders

For residents of France, Germany, Greece, and Spain, this partnership opens up a remarkable opportunity. By contributing to our initiatives—such as empowering refugee and asylum-seeking students or contributing to our fight against Parkinson’s disease—through one of our TGE partner organisations, you not only support meaningful causes but also unlock the tax advantages provided by your country of residence’s legislation.

Seamless Donation Process

Making your tax-effective contribution is straightforward. Visit our user-friendly online giving platform, where you can explore projects that resonate with you. When you’re ready to contribute, simply select ‘Donate from Europe.’ This option enables you to channel your support to the University of Kent while harnessing the benefits of tax-efficient giving through our esteemed TGE partners. If you prefer a more personal touch, you can reach out to our TGE partner organizations directly via email or telephone.
