Launch of the TGE Transnational Giving Platform

TGE is proud to announce the launch of Europe’s first online Transnational Giving Platform.

Publication date: 6 Jul 2020

Transnational Giving Europe is thrilled to launch Europe’s first online Transnational Giving Platform.

This digital solution will facilitate cross-border philanthropy by allowing individuals and companies to make online donations and to benefit from tax deductions in their country of residence.

Two non-profit organisations, Fedora Platform and Common Goal, are the first to pilot this new online donation platform.This initiative is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, and the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, with the support of the King Baudouin Foundation, and is powered by iRaiser.

 

We are convinced that this is a major and unprecedented step forward for the generosity and nonprofit sector in Europe.

In a quickly changing world and with raising uncertainties, the first online Transnational Giving Europe Platform, built by the Transnational Giving Europe Network, offers added value for donations. This project puts a digital tool at the service of the pure human need to give to causes close to one’s heart. With this new online giving solution, we bridge the gap between European donors and the non-profit sector and move one step closer to a single European market for philanthropy. Doing good has never been easier, so let us unlock the full potential of generosity across Europe together!” Cvjetana Plavsa-Matic Chairwoman of Transnational Giving Europe.
