Common Goal – Change the game for good

‘’With more than three billion fans, football is the largest social phenomenon on the planet. No other sport boasts such wealth. Or such reach. Or such cultural significance. The beautiful game is in a league of its own. Imagine uniting the world of football behind a shared social vision. Imagine the impact we could create and the lives we could change. Through Common Goal, this is what we are trying to achieve. Juan Mata and Mats Hummels are leading the way and they want you to join them.’’

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.
