Support The Maaspoort
High-level classical concerts, the best Dutch theatre productions, a rich youth programme, young talent from the region, but also surprising performances from abroad. We do everything we can to keep the cultural offering in Venlo at a high level.
Giving is about passion and showing someone a warm heart. Giving is more than just money. With your contribution, you strengthen the cultural foundation of Venlo and you give De Maaspoort the chance to build on the future.
Besides feeling satisfied, it can also give you an attractive tax deduction because De Maaspoort has the ANBI status. The Maaspoort is exempted from paying gift and inheritance tax and every donation goes entirely to our activities. Moreover, there is a special tax advantage for both individuals and companies. That is a nice bonus!
Thanks to the Giving Act that took effect on 1 January 2012, you can deduct 125% of your donation from the income tax. Suppose you donate €1,000, your deduction will be €1,250. If you fall under the 52% rate, the donation of € 1,000 will therefore only cost you € 350 net. Thanks to this multiplier, you may deduct more from your income tax than you donated. In this way, you owe less net, or you can donate more without it costing you more net. However, a maximum amount of € 1,250 applies. For a donation of € 6,000, you can therefore increase it by € 1,250.
For a one-time donation, a threshold of 1% of your threshold income and a maximum of 10% applies. For a periodic donation, these thresholds do not apply; for an annuity donation of at least five years, this is fully deductible from your income tax.
giving as a company
A company that pays corporation tax can deduct donations to a good cause from its taxes. Thanks to the Giving Act that has been in force since 1 January 2012, companies can deduct donations to a cultural ANBI for 150%, with a maximum of € 2,500. For a donation of € 6,000, a deduction of € 8,500 therefore applies. The total deduction may not exceed 50% of the profit.
Bequeathing to our organisation is a nice gesture to future generations and a special way to emphasise your connection with De Maaspoort. Your legacy to De Maaspoort is free of inheritance tax. De Maaspoort does not have to pay tax on the inheritance received, because we are recognised by the tax authorities as an ANBI (Institution for General Benefit).
When buying tickets through our website and/or at our box office, you can choose to make a donation. You can choose from various amounts. You pay the amount of the donation together with your purchase via iDeal or via a payment at our box office.
