Donations to tax-exempt institutions

Donations (donations) are voluntary payments of money or other assets to legal entities that are tax-exempt in Switzerland because of charitable status or for pursuing public purposes. Voluntary benefits to the Confederation, the cantons, the municipalities and their institutions are also considered donations.

Voluntary work (donations of time) are not considered donations.

Donations are deductible if they total at least CHF 100 in the tax year. The donation deduction is limited to 20 percent of your net income.

Note: Every declared donation amount must be documented.

The sum of the donations is automatically reduced to the tax-deductible amount. The amount taken into account will be evident from the assessment decision.
