The Transnational Giving Europe network welcomes and supports this momentum and the progress that has already been made regarding changes to the national laws of Member States in two ways - By continuing to seek new partners to increase tax-effective giving in all Member States of the EU until all legal and practical barriers to cross-border giving within the EU are removed. - By providing concrete, valuable and free information to donors, intermediaries and beneficiaries that wish to give or receive a cross-border donation or legacy.
