Private donors are the backbone of our foundation!

How we handle sponsorship funds

We can only carry out our activities through the donations of our sponsors and the volunteer work of the many affiliated doctors, nurses, and other professionals who are committed to St. Kizito.

We have a charitable status, so donations are tax-deductible. We adhere to the reporting requirements associated with this status and provide transparent reports on the projects we execute. We publish a newsletter every year, and Child Support sponsors receive an annual individual letter with news about their “child.”

All donations go directly to hospital activities, with 99% allocated directly to the hospital’s activities. The remaining 1% covers necessary administrative expenses. Everyone involved in the foundation does so voluntarily, and travel and accommodation costs are borne by themselves.

One-time donation

This can be done simply by transferring the desired amount via the Ideal payment button below. 

A donation can also be transferred to account number NL68 ABNA 0404 1929 04 in the name of the Friends of Mikumi Foundation in Voerendaal.

The foundation has an ANBI status in The Netherlands, which means you can deduct the donation as a tax deduction for income tax purposes in The Netherlands. To be eligible for deduction, the total of the donations you make to ANBI institutions and certain associations must exceed both the threshold of 1% of the so-called threshold income and an amount of € 60. The deductible amount is then the amount that exceeds those thresholds, up to a maximum of 10% of the threshold income. For periodic gifts, a broader deduction applies, see below. General information on gift deductions is provided on the Tax Authorities website.

Periodic donation

Tax advantage over five years in the Netherlands

You can also make donations more frequently, for example monthly. In that case, we recommend setting up an automatic transfer so you don’t forget the donation. The total of the transfers during a year is treated by the tax authorities in the same way as a one-time donation.

If you make a periodic donation to the foundation for a period of five years (annually, quarterly, or monthly), this is the most tax-efficient option for you. The entire amount is then deductible, without thresholds. This means that depending on the tax rate applicable to you, you can get back up to about 37% of the donation. One condition of this form of giving is that you donate a fixed amount annually to the Stichting Vrienden van Mikumi for a period of at least 5 years. Since 2014, no notarial deed is required for this. The agreement is terminated upon the death of the donor or the dissolution of the foundation.

The benefit for you is the tax savings resulting from the deduction of the full donated amount, while the foundation gets the opportunity to plan five years ahead. These donations are the backbone of the foundation.

The link below contains the model donation agreement from the Tax Authority for a periodic cash donation. This meets the requirements for deduction.

Donations of materials and equipment

As you have read on the website, we also bring good, usable, and effective materials and equipment for the hospital and schools to Mikumi. Think of computers, school furniture, beds, medical equipment, dental instruments, and materials, etc.

If you have items that are interesting for Friends of Mikumi, please send an email to the address below. We will then contact you as soon as possible.


Since 2017, Friends of Mikumi has been working with Wilde Ganzen on the project: “Towards a vocational education for midwives and nurses in Mikumi.” For every euro the foundation raised in sponsorship funds for the project, Wilde Ganzen contributed 50 eurocents.

Another collaboration is with Sintermeertencollege. This secondary school organizes fundraising activities for the foundation, and groups of students regularly go to Mikumi to work on construction projects or hospital improvement projects.

Recently, the HandsnFeet foundation has started a campaign for the “Physio for kids in Tanzania” project. With these donations, we will set up a separate physiotherapy department for children.

Many thanks to our sponsors, large and small, for their support and enthusiastic responses. Without them, we would not be able to support children with their education and future, carry out construction projects to modernize the hospital, and build schools to support the Mikumi community.

Zo doet u een periodieke schenking aan de Stichting Vrienden van Mikumi

  1. Download via de onderstaande button de model-schenkingsovereenkomst van de Belastingdienst voor een periodieke gift in geld. Deze voldoet aan de eisen voor aftrek.

  2. Vul de onderdelen 1, 2, 3, 5 en eventueel 6 in. Bij onderdeel 1: het bedrag dat u schenkt dient minimaal € 50,00 per jaar te bedragen, dit vanwege de administratieve lasten die aan de verwerking van de overeenkomst zijn verbonden.

  3. Print de overeenkomst twee keer uit en zorg voor ondertekening van beide exemplaren bij onderdelen 5 en eventueel 6.

  4. Stuur beide exemplaren van de overeenkomst naar het secretariaat van de stichting:
         Stichting Vrienden van Mikumi
         Hogeweg 4
         6367 BD  Voerendaal

  5. Wij zorgen voor invulling van de onderdelen 4 en 7 en sturen u na ondertekening namens de stichting één overeenkomst weer terug.

  6. Bewaar de overeenkomst, want de fiscus kan er bij een controle naar vragen.

Geeft u de voorkeur eraan de periodieke gift in een notariële akte te laten vastleggen en is het te schenken bedrag ten minste € 100,00 per jaar? Neem in dat geval contact met ons op. Het opmaken van de akte kan worden verzorgd door één van de notarissen verbonden aan het kantoor Tomlow + Partners Notarissen te Heerlen. U dient daartoe een volmacht in te vullen, door een lokale notaris te laten legaliseren en naar ons terug  te sturen samen met een kopie van een identiteitsbewijs. De richtprijs voor een dergelijke legalisatie bij een lokale notaris ligt tussen de 50 en 100 euro.
