The Mendel Foundation is a Not-for-Profit organization. In Holland, a Not-for-Profit must, morally and certainly also for federal tax purposes, fulfill certain strict conditions (which we meet with ease):

      • What we do must, without limitations, be of value to the majority of the citizens.
      • There can be no financial profits.
      • The organization must be highly transparent, (financially, in its goals and tasks, activities, proceeds).


Provided these conditions are met, a Dutch Not-for-Profit doesn’t pay income taxes: all donations, legacies and sponsor money is entirely available for the charitable goals. Proceedings from billable activities are exempt till a maximum of € 32.000,00 per year.

Since this is a Dutch policy and obligation, we take the liberty to only publish them in the Dutch language, at least so-far.
