The FEDORA Platform provides donors who are French fiscal residents and companies registered in France with tax receipts corresponding to the amount of their donation following French fiscal law. In order to generate the tax receipts, donors need to provide their full name and address. For international legal coordination purposes, a donor who chooses to benefit from tax deduction cannot additionally obtain the crowdfunding benefits associated with the donation basket he or she selected in the context of the fundraising campaigns of the nominated projects.Tax deductible donations for individuals and companies based in selected EU countries
Residents from and companies registered in Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Switzerland or U.K. can benefit from tax deductions valid in their country of residence. To do so, the donor will be
redirected to the Transnational Giving Europe Platform to proceed to the payment of its donation. To this end, Transnational Giving Europe will use and collect the donor’s data as explained in their Privacy Statement.
Donation transactions are made in each country’s local currency of the above-mentioned countries.
Donations can be made online by Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Bancontact or Paypal, depending on each National Transnational Giving Europe Partner Foundation’s capacity. Transnational Giving Europe guarantees a secure payment procedure through the Transnational Giving Europe Platform powered by iRaiser.
The National Transnational Giving Europe Partner Foundation is responsible for emitting a valid tax receipt according to donor’s country of tax residence, after having conducted a due diligence verification procedure required by national laws.
Information that is shared with nominees and their collaborators
Once a donor makes a donation to a project on the FEDORA Platform or on the Transnational Giving Europe Platform or “TGE”, the FEDORA Platform informs the project’s lead company about the donor’s name, donation amount, and the selected benefits. Projects never receive donors’ credit card details or other payment information. At the end of the fundraising campaign, the projects will coordinate directly with the donor the delivery of the benefits (if applicable) and updates about the advancements of the project.
FEDORA commits to transferring the donations received on behalf of the nominated projects minus its management fees (which are equal to 6% for donations processed through the FEDORA Platform and 14% for donations processed through the TGE Platform) to the project after the end of the nominees’ fundraising campaigns.
The lead companies have the option to appoint collaborators to help manage their projects. These collaborators may be able to access some of the information available to the project (including donors’ names, email addresses, donation amounts, benefit selections, and messages), and are required to treat donors’ personal information with the same care and respect as the lead companies are. The lead companies and their collaborators may also receive anonymized information about the ways people visit and interact with their project page, in the form of routine traffic analytics.
