Transnational Giving Europe

Support the Opéra national du Rhin while enjoying tax write-offs in your country through the Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) network.

TGE joins Europe’s major philanthropic institutions to simplify giving across borders, both for individuals and for companies.


How it works:

  1. Contact Fidelio to learn about our different membership categories and for help with the TGE process.

  2. Contact your local TGE liaison organization: Maecenata Stiftung for Germany or Swiss Philanthropy Foundation for Switzerland.

  3. Send your donation through one of these local organizations, which are partners of Fidelio.

TGE issues tax receipts in the donor’s language and according to your local legal requirements.
