Fiscal deductions

Most countries acknowledge the right to tax savings for charitable donations. Read on to find out more.

If you are donating from Italy

Today in Italy there is a new favorable tax regime for those who support culture with charitable donations. It's called Art bonus, and it is a tax credit equal to 65 % of charitable contributions that individuals or companies make in favor of public cultural heritage. The Art bonus is revolutionary for our country, which has a unique cultural heritage. Now every Italian citizen can contribute to protecting Italy’s cultural heritage, and passing it on to the next generations with this simple gesture. With a donation, you receive not only a tax advantage but also the pride in taking care of the Italian cultural heritage.

The tax credit Art bonus is granted both to individuals, and businesses resident in Italy.

Visit our page Art Bonus per Santa Croce on their website.

If you are donating from Europe

The Opera di Santa Croce is part of the TGE (Transnational Giving Europe) network that enables citizens’ resident in some European countries to make a donation and take advantage of the fiscal deductions that are applicable in their own nation. TGE links European donors to non-profit organizations all over the world. Following the link below you can find out more and see the updated list of the countries that participate.
