Yes, you can! Your contribution makes a difference. You help BRS vzw fulfil its mission: to give entrepreneurs in the South the opportunity to take control of their own lives.
Your donation goes entirely to our activities in the South. After all, the daily operating costs of BRS vzw are paid by Cera. The administrative costs of BRS vzw are therefore very limited.
Donations to BRS vzw are tax deductible. For donations of at least EUR 40, you will receive a tax certificate. With the certificate, you can recover 45% of your donation through your taxes.
You can transfer your donation safely and quickly to the account number below.
You can also choose to donate a fixed amount each month via a standing order. You can do this yourself through your bank.
BRS can also be supported through your estate or a donation. Bequeathing and donating to good causes has been tax free in the Flemish Region since 1 July 2021. When you bequeath or donate an amount to BRS vzw, we do not pay any inheritance or gift tax and we are very grateful to you for that.
The inheritance and gift tax for good causes has been reduced to 0% in the Flemish Region. It is therefore possible to bequeath or donate tax-free to a charity such as BRS vzw.
The Flemish Government approved this new scheme in a decree of 19 March 2021.* In concrete terms, it means that if you donate or bequeath an amount to BRS vzw, we do not have to pay any tax on it.
This new scheme will be introduced as compensation for the abolition of the tax benefit that was linked to the dual legacy in wills.
* The new decree of the Flemish Government applies if you live in the Flemish Region. For Brussels and Wallonia, the inheritance rates remain for a dual-legacy estate or for a donation to a charity.
