When you donate to the Residentie Orkest, your money goes into the Fund Residentie Orkest. This Fund was established in February 2020 with the goal of providing necessary financial support to Residentie Orkest The Hague.
Every year the Fund contributes to the artistic, educational and social projects of the Orchestra. This helps the Orchestra in its efforts as an (inter)national orchestra to play the most beautiful (classical) music and thus be an ambassador for the city of The Hague. At the same time, the Fund contributes to the objective of the Residentie Orkest to be there for everyone in the Hague region through its extensive educational and social activities.

Tax-free gifting, how does it work?
The Fund Residentie Orkest is designated by the Tax Office as a cultural Charitable Foundation (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling). What you donate, we can use one hundred percent to pass on music to future generations. It is also fiscally attractive for you as a donor to donate.
Donors to cultural Charitable Foundation's have an additional gift deduction. Thus, you can sometimes even double your support of the orchestra, at no cost to you.
A periodic gift of at least five years is fully deductible for income tax purposes. There is no threshold income or maximum deductible amount. Would you like to qualify for this? Then have the donation recorded in a written agreement. We can send you the form for this.
Because Fonds Residentie Orkest is a cultural Charitable Foundation , you may even deduct 125% of your gift in this case. This additional deduction applies to a maximum gift amount of €5,000 per year. Of course, the donation amount above €5,000 remains 100% deductible.
