How do I record a donation in my will?

For Dutch authorities a legacy is a certain amount that is left to a person or institution and is recorded in a will. If you want to commemorate the Morogoro Support Foundation Child Support Mikumi you can have this wish recorded in your will. You can choose to include the term free of duty in your will. This means that inheritance tax is paid out of the total estate and not by the transferee. For amounts lower than approximately € 8.284, - no inheritance tax is due (see bottom of this page). If the amount is higher, the Morogoro Support Foundation is obliged to pay 11% inheritance tax on the entire amount.

An inheritance is an appointment of a person or a legal entity to inherit the estate. If you designate the Morogoro Support Foundation as heir, you choose to leave her your property. An inheritance relates to your entire estate = total minus debts. If you remember the Morogoro Support Foundation in your will, we will share the balance of your estate with your other heirs. This after deduction of legacies and costs, such as inheritance tax. The foundation does not have to pay any inheritance tax up to an amount of approximately € 8,284 (see insert). With higher amounts the percentage of 11% applies again.

Legacies and inheritances are recorded in a will. Questions concerning a will can best be answered by a notary, who can also take your personal situation into account. A notary also has brochures about inheritance law.

Do you want to know more? Our secretariat can send you a standard deed for an annuity gift and give you the name of the notary who can pass the act at a greatly reduced rate.
