ANBI Status in the Netherlands

To meet the ANBI status, the tax authorities set a number of publication conditions. ChildsLife meets these conditions.

For 15 years, ChildsLife held the CBF accreditation. It was important for ChildsLife and appropriate for a growing organization in development.
However, in recent years, the costs of carrying and maintaining the CBF accreditation were no longer seen as a responsible use of funds for an organization of ChildsLife’s size. The preference is to save these costs and to use the funds directly for the programs.
After careful consideration and consultation with all stakeholders, the ChildsLife Boards of Directors and Trustees have therefore chosen not to continue the accreditation as of January 1, 2017.
ChildsLife’s transparent way of working has not changed. ChildsLife maintains the ANBI status and the accounts are audited annually by accredited Beuk Accountants of Velsen-Zuid in the Netherlands.
501c3 Status in the USA
ChildsLife USA is geregistreerd als non-profit met 501c3 status. Dit houdt in dat ChildsLife erkend is door de belastingdienst van de Verenigde staten, hetgeen belastingvoordeel oplevert voor zowel donateurs als de organisatie.
