Donating to UM goes beyond tax relief
Ernst Loendersloot studied Dutch and International Law at Maastricht University and obtained his diploma in Notarial Studies from the University of Amsterdam. He works at Huenges Wajer Joosten, a notarial office in Maastricht that has recently agreed to draw up notarial deeds for donations to Limburg University Fund/SWOL free of charge. Yesterday, he handed in the first signed notarial deed to Sandra van den Tillaard, Senior Fundraiser at the Development & Alumni Relations department.
Donations can be deducted from your taxable income. “Depending on the tax rate, you may be reimbursed by up to 52% for your donation. To benefit from tax relief you have to reside in the Netherlands and make a contract with Limburg University Fund/SWOL where you agree to donate a specific amount for at least five years. We will then draw the notary deed that will make the donation official”, says Loendersloot.
But donating goes beyond tax relief – “that is just a nice extra.” For Loendersloot, it is important to support the university’s innovative approach to education and research. “As a UM alumnus, donating to this fund is a way of showing your support to UM and strengthening your ties with the region.”
The money donated to Limburg University Fund/SWOL is used to support a wide range of initiatives, from funding important research to building new facilities, to providing internships or bursaries for talented students from the Netherlands and abroad.
