Joy of a Toy depends completely on donations of private persons and organizations. We welcome every euro and we are proud to emphasize that no cent is being wasted. At the moment we have several donors on a regular base who grant us the opportunity to pay for the bigger part of the monthly regular costs of the project in Kalwala Village. We welcome of course every extra donor, no matter how big or small their contribution.
If you’re willing to subscribe as a donor of Joy of a Toy, please feel free. Every contribution can be transferred to our account NL54 INGB 0002 2665 20 of Stichting Joy of a Toy, Maarssen-the Netherlands (Foundation Joy of a Toy in Maarssen).
We would like to ask everyone who wants to become a regular donor to organize ones regular donation with their own bank by way of a periodic bank transfer to the account NL54 INGB 0002 2665 20, Stichting Joy of a Toy, Maarssen- the Netherlands. Automatic collection is unfortunately impossible from now one because of the fact that the new bank number structure IBAN/SEPA brings forth rather high costs when it comes to automatic collection.
Maybe it is good to know that Foundation Joy of a Toy is acknowledged by the Dutch Tax Authority as an Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling, an ANBI. This means that according to Dutch Tax Laws any donor of Joy of a Toy has the possibility of using the donations to Joy of a Toy as a deduction on one’s tax declaration.
Another way of donating to our Foundation which even grants more tax efficiency is the so called donation on a periodical base. Opting for that possibility one has to donate the same annual amount to the Foundation for a period of at least 5 years. Since 1 January 2014 one doesn’t need to contact a solicitor for this anymore. It suffices to fill in a form that also has to be signed by the representatives of Foundation Joy of a Toy. Advantages of this way of donating are the lacking of a tax threshold and a maximum of the tax deduction. If you are interested in this possibility, we suggest that you start with contacting us about this issue. In that case we will take care of that form too. See page Contact
