Once you have made your gift by credit card, cheque or bank transfer, the University will be able to issue a receipt for Canadian tax purposes for gifts made directly to Fitzwilliam. Please request a receipt from the Development Office when making your gift.
Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) is a network of philanthropic institutions across 19 countries that foster charitable giving. If you are a resident and paying tax in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain or Switzerland, you can choose to make a gift tax-efficiently through Transnational Giving Europe (TGE). Details of the partner organisation in your home country can be found on the TGE website.
We already receive gifts from a number of European countries by this mechanism, and please contact the Development Office to ensure the correct process is in place for your home country.
While gifts can be made through any of the partner organisations, the process is particularly straightforward from Germany, where you can make a gift directly to Fitzwilliam online on the Maecenata Stiftung website. Please be aware that administration and banking charges may be applied.
