Donating to African Parks from other European countries besides the UK and the Netherlands:

European countries have different rules when it comes to tax-efficient philanthropic giving. Most European countries do not grant income tax deductibility to donors wanting to support a foreign beneficiary in another member state. For that reason, African Parks has in place arrangements in a number of countries through the Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) programme.

Donors are able to make tax-efficient donations in their home country using the bank account of the TGE partner, who will provide any fiscal receipt needed for national tax purpose and take care of the international transaction to African Parks, avoiding gift taxes. TGE offers its services in 19 European countries. Please visit: for more information.
