Of course. There are different types of certificates:
Confirmation of annual appropriation/collective donation certificate
Every spring (probably in March) of a new year, mafianeindanke sends out an unsolicited tax-deductible annual confirmation of appropriation/collective donation certificate which summarises all the donations made during the year. The dispatch takes place for donations of over 200 euro.
Confirmation of donation/individual donation receipt
At your own request, we will issue an individual donation receipt for donations of 200 euros or more. The dispatch takes place approx. 8 weeks after your donation receipt. Please contact us if you would like an individual donation receipt for your donations.
Individual donations up to 200 Euro
For individual donations of up to 200 euros, a “simplified proof”, e.g. printout of the online donation confirmation or our thank you e-mail together with the account statement, is recognised as a donation confirmation (for online banking, the printout of the booking confirmation). You can also enclose our simplified proof of donation.
