Become a Donor

Make a gift, a donation or a bequest

Your gift, donation or bequest makes a significant difference to the mission of the Museum Plantin-Moretus.

With your donation you become part of our story.

How do you become a Donor?

How you donate, depends on you, of course. Under certain conditions, you may enjoy tax breaks. You can make an instant donation by a simple bank transfer, or arrange for a gift inter vivos. Or you can take an important decision: you can choose to include additional heirs in your will as well as your legal heirs. Leaving a bequest to a heritage institution such as the Museum Plantin-Moretuscosts you nothing today, but will be extremely valuable to the Museum in the future.

Via a gift

You can give today. Gifts paid via the King Baudouin Foundation are tax-deductible at or above 40 euros (Art. 104 WIB).

Via a bequest

If you decide to leave a bequest to the Museum Plantin-Moretus in your will, we recommend that you first discuss this with your notary. Also of interest is the duo bequest, by which you leave a sum of money or a specific possession to your legal heirs and another sum of money or a specific possession to a charity such as the Museum Plantin-Moretus. The museum then pays both its own inheritance duty and those of the legal heirs. This increases the net amount left to the legal heirs.

Feel free to tell us about your future plans

In addition, you are welcome to tell us in confidence about your future plans. This information will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and will not bind you to us in any way. However, if you are prepared to let us know your intentions, this will enable us to express our gratitude to you in a personal and sincere fashion.

Every gift, donation and bequest is important to us – regardless of size. We are profoundly grateful to every donor.
