Dear inhabitants of Best,
23 Charity organisations have a joint collection in Best from April 11 – April 15 2023

This letter informs you on this joint initiative
What is the Charities Week Best (in dutch: Goede Doelen Week Best)?

• Instead of all kinds of different collections, from now on only 1 collector will come to the door on
behalf of the 23 Charities that have joined forces in the non-profit organisation “Stichting Goede
Doelen Week Best”.

• You can decide for yourself to which Charities you want to donate. All participating Charities have
the CBF quality mark (Central Bureau for Fundraising). The CBF tests whether Charities meet strict
quality requirements.

• Your donation will initially go to the bank account of “Stichting Goede Doelen Week Best”, a non-
profit organisation with an ANBI status. As a result, donors can, under certain conditions, receive a
deduction for their donation in their income or corporation tax return.

• At the end of the collection week, “Stichting Goede Doelen Week Best” ensures that the money is
transferred to the participating Charities, in accordance with the forms received.

• The Charity Week Best is organized by volunteers. Organizational costs (printing, collection
materials, etc.) are covered as much as possible by sponsorship. Should this not be sufficient, a
small percentage of the proceeds may be withheld to cover these costs.

How can you participate?
