We want to cooperate with other organisations such as service clubs, companies and schools who would like to support Java Village. Are you a service club looking for a charity to support or would you like to organise an event? Or are you a company trying to give something back to the community? Perhaps you are looking for a charity to be chosen as a donation option for the annual Christmas package?

Whichever way your company, organisation or club would like to cooperate with us, you will always contribute to a better future for the most underprivileged inhabitants in Cisarua.

Donate with fiscal benefits or leave assets to Java Village

Are you currently supporting the Java Village Foundation financially or are you considering that option? In that case it is possibile to donate a larger amount without that it wiil cost you more. Your donations to our foundation are tax deductible in the Netherlands. Our foundation is recognised by the Dutch government as an ANBI organisation (institution serving public interest). For one-time donations a threshold of 1% (minimum € 60) and a maximum of 10% of your total income (stated at the bottom of your tax form) applies.

No threshold for periodical donations

A periodical donation is a gift of the same amount for a period of at least five years. This amount is fully tax deductible. The threshold of 1% with maximum of 10% does not apply in this case, so you will have a larger tax return than in the case of a one-time donation. This benefit may increase to 52% depending on your age and the height of your income. You may transfer this benefit to the foundation, thus increasing your donation without suffering any financial disadvantage.

Calculation example * One-time donation Periodical donation
Annual donation to the foundation € 150,- € 250,-
Amount of tax return € 0,- € 101,-
Annual net contribution to our foundation € 150,- € 149,-
