Support the Pieterskerk Leiden

Cultural ANBI status

The Pieterskerk Leiden Foundation and the Friends of the Pieterskerk Leiden Foundation both have the cultural ABNI status. Donors of cultural ANBI’s have extra tax benefits, because an additional tax deduction applies to them.

Private donors are allowed to multiply a donation to a cultural ANBI organisation by 1,25 and deduct this as a gift in their yearly income tax returns. Businesses that fall under the corporation tax, are allowed to deduct 1,5 times the amount of such a donation from their tax returns for corporation taxes.

Thank you for your support!

The Pieterskerk Leiden is a 900 year old monument. Not a day goes by where there is no maintenance work being carried out somewhere inside the monument. Besides that, there is also research being carried out with regard to the history of our monument. This knowledge is naturally shared.

The donations which the Pieterskerk Leiden receives are directed mostly towards funding maintenance. But it is also spent on education, guided tours, exhibitions & lectures.

Every donation, large or small, contributes to the preservation of the Pieterskerk Leiden for future generations, as well as to sharing the history with contemporary generations. This is something for which we are very grateful.
