NON-TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIFTS

Gifts of money for which you are not looking to get a tax receipt, or which do not qualify as a tax deductible donation, should be paid to the Junior Funding Program to serve the action of Champ’seed Foundation. Only gifts by bank transfer are accepted.

Non-qualifying Donations

Not all gifts qualify as tax deductible donations. Specified conditions must be met for gifts to be “a qualifying donation”; the essence of these rules is that gifts with associated benefits for the donor cannot provide tax relief.

Examples where gifts of money to Champ’seed Foundation do not qualify as tax deductible donations include the following situations:

– Typically our auction items do not qualify as a donation for tax credit purposes. Successful bidders will not receive tax relief for gifts of money.

– Costs of attendance to participate to our charitable events (e.g. our annual gala) do not qualify as a donation either. Event participants will therefore not receive tax relief for the payment of their costs of attendance.

– We are also unable to send certificates of donation for gifts below the minimum amount of GBP 250 in the UK or CHF 500 in Switzerland or EUR 1 000 in Spain, or in countries outside of Luxembourg, France, UK, Germany, Switzerland, the United States or Spain.

Junior Funding Program: the operating entity of Champ’seed Foundation

Junior Funding Program is a so-called “Association Loi 1901”, a non-profit organization created in France upon request of Fondation de Luxembourg with the goal to proceed with all relevant operations related to the activity of Champ’seed Foundation.

Donations paid for the benefit of Champ’seed Foundation are regularly paid out by Fondation de Luxembourg to Junior Funding Program (minus administrative fees of 5%).
