How to become a donor

Via a fairly informal manner and word of mouth advertising the Jonathan Foundation has built up a network of donors.

An important part is the recruiting of donors and hold on to existing donor group. We inform the donors via our newsletter about our work and new developments in the projects in the Copperbelt province. The board continues to focus on ways to expand the number of donors, to raise awareness of the problem of children and young adults with intellectual disabilities in Zambia. (See: what do we do with your money?)


At the request of schools, institutions and organizations (such as service clubs), we give lectures, information evenings and power point shows.

Ways to support

  • One-off:
  • You can safely and secure donate via Ideal. Or you can transfer the donation to the bank account number: IBAN NL53RABO0138746834
  • Structural: 
  • With a fixed amount through a bank authorization, per period of your choice.
  • Granting tax benefits ANBI Foundation Jonathan is considered by the Tax Administration as a General Nutritional Institution. ANBI Institutions can use certain Tax benefits at:
  • inheritance and legacy’s
  • donations and gifts

The advantage of donating to an ANBI Institution is: you can deduct the gift entirely or partially, from your taxable income. So, the Tax Office therefor pays for your gift. By taking advantage of the Tax Benefit you can give more money with the same money. Because the Tax service pays the difference with the Income Tax Return 

Since 2015 you can grant the donation without the intervention of a notary, via a form that you can download below. Through this form you will receive a donation for 5 years. The minimum amount of donation is € 6, – per month and you can transfer it monthly, quarterly or half-yearly, but also annually.The Tax Benefit depends on the Tax Box and is there for individual.  For more information you can contact us by email or by telephone. Mr. Cees Schouten will inform you further. On the website of the Tax Office you will find more information.
