Support us structurally
Our social enterprises and projects are long term processes with a clear focus. With a long term commitment, you help ensure that we can carefully plan our projects based on local needs. It helps us to make realistic plans and make them come true. But this requires investment. A little bit every month. By people who know what is important. Will you invest too?


Connect as an entrepreneur
A substantial part of Solid's funding comes from likeminded entrepreneurs and we like it that way. Economic growth, job creation, and expanding opportunities depends on thriving entrepreneurship. When our social entreprises succeed, people can move out of poverty and build better futures.

  Every donation, large or small, is very welcome. For donations of 40 euros or more per year, made through our account at King Baudouin Foundation, you receive a tax certificate, which allows you to get 45% of your donation back from your taxes. So, for example, your donation of 100 euros will only cost you 55 euros. Monthly donors receive an annual statement reflecting the prior year's total contributions. This statement is usually mailed in March of the following calendar year and will be send to you by KBS directly. 

Non-Belgian donors living in France, the Netherlands, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Denmark, wishing to support a Fund managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, can make their donations directly to the Foundation and at the same time benefit from all the tax advantages in their country of residence. The Foundation is also recognized in these four countries

 

Your donation is an essential part of the overall Solid budget that covers all our operations and achievements. This budget is made up of a variety of funding sources. We follow a multiannual program and draw up an annual budget. This determines how much money goes to each activity. If we were to do it the other way round and let people choose exactly which activity they want to support, we would run the risk of certain essential activities being forgotten, and moreover, continuity over the years cannot be guaranteed. After all, Solid is not an emergency aid organization, but a nonprofit that strives for structural changes. 

In our communication, we always make it clear that the projects we describe are examples of the efficient use of Solid's donations. These examples are meant to make clear what Solid is all about, what choices we make and what results we (want to) achieve.

Solids initiatives and projects are long-term processes with a clear focus. That is why it is so important that we can count on your structural commitment. This way, we can better assess what financial resources we will have in the future and make realistic plans. But this requires investment. A little bit every month. By people who know what is important. Monthly giving to Solid is simply the best long-term investment that you can make – it’s the most effective and manageable way you can support our efforts to minimize poverty.
