Ethical fundraising

Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium respects donors and their privacy. We raise funds in an ethical and efficient manner, are financially transparent and provide information about what happens to the money we raised.

The Belgian association Ethical Fundraising checks every year whether we ethically deal with donors and their donations. The Belgian government also checks regularly how we spent our money and whether we can issue tax certificates. Rest assured, we are allowed to do so. As a donor living in Belgium, you receive a tax certificate for donations starting from 40 euros on an annual basis. A token of confidence, even if we say so ourselves.

Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium endorses the ethics code of the association Ethical Fundraising. You have a right to information. This means that donors, volunteers and employees are at least annually informed of what has been done with the acquired funds.
