We are looking into getting "artikel 24" status in the Netherlands. It means we can inherit money and, people who donate money can get a tax refund. It means that we have to do proper administration,

Local organisation[edit]

When we create a local organisation representing the Foundation and its aims we can get this tax status. This can be either a nl:w:vereniging or a nl:w:stichting.

Artikel 24 status for the Foundation in the Netherlands[edit]

It transpires that we can get the status for the Foundation itself. This would mean that we need to do some paperwork and be an organisation that truly has a mondilal sphere of operation. We have to be doing stuff for the common good and, there cannot be another organisation in the Netherlands representing the Foundation.

I understand that technically it is possible to get this status for the Foundation in all the EU countries.

When we go this way we have to have a high quality administration and, it is certain that this will become a full time position.
