How to make a donation

Most donors are using Paypal, see below. But check the country specific information first:

Europe
Transfer the money in euro to our bank with a SEPA transaction. This has minimal costs and will allow for a tax reduction if you live in Holland. See Bank transfer below.
Germany
Send the money to MISEREOR to get a tax reduction if you live in Germany. See here (German) or here (English).
USA
Canada
Most prefer to use Paypal. The other methods mentioned below can also be used.
For sponsoring a child contact Kibaale Children's Fund (KCF) in Canada (see below). US and Canadian checks can be send to them to lower banking costs.
Switzerland
For companies a tax reduction can be obtained, see below.

Do you work for Google? Please enter your gift on giftmatch and Google will double the amount (if the conditions are met). The organisation ID is 21197, or search for "ICCF".

For bitcoins see the bitcoin donation page.

Transfer methods in order of preference:
Bank transfer

Paypal

Paypal logo
You can use PayPal to send money with a Credit card or from your bank account. This is the most widely used Internet based payment system. It's secure and really simple to use, just press this button and follow the directions:
To start a recurring payment see the subscription page.
See the paypal site for information. The e-mail address for sending the money to is: Bram@iccf-holland.org. Using Euro is preferred, US dollars are also accepted. For amounts above 400 Euro ($500) sending a check is preferred.
Security check: On the PayPal page the URL must start with "https://www.paypal.com/".
 
Skrill / Moneybookers
Skrill (formerly called Moneybookers) was working fine in the past, but now they have blocked our account and require a dozen of forms to be filled in and are very slow to respond to questions. For now I don't trust them, I'm afraid money would be stuck in the account. Please use another payment method.
 
Postal Money order
This should be possible in any country, at a low cost. Mostly at the post office. Use the name that is in my passport: "Abraham Moolenaar", and the address at the end. Use Euro for the currency if possible.
 
Check
For Canada and the USA see the next item. Sending any normal bank check to ICCF Holland should be possible. Please verify that it is accepted in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, our bank charges 12 euro for cashing a check. Only use this method for large amounts.
 
KCF in Canada
KCF forwards 100% of the money to the project in Uganda.
If you make a donation to Kibaale Children's Fund (KCF) you will receive a tax receipt which can be submitted with your tax return.
KCF is under the umbrella of Pacific Academy Outreach Society, which is a charity registered in Canada. More information on their web site. KCF takes care of the Canadian sponsors for the children in Kibaale. You can also contact them if you would like to sponsor a child.

Switzerland
Companies in Switzerland can send a donation to MISEREOR, see here (German) or here (English). According to a well informed tax person the donation can be put in the books as a donation, so long as it is a reasonable amount.
As far as we know this is not possible for private persons.
