Where’s the Register of Charities?

ANBI-logo A question by a student this week prompted my curiosity: where’s the address list of all registered charities in the Netherlands?

At the website of Netherlands tax authorities (“Belastingdienst”) there used to be a list of all names of registered charities and the place where they are registered. The list did not give addresses or contact information. Neither is there any information about the mission or sector of the organization, let alone financial data about income and expenses.

February 12, 2014 update: the list has been taken down from the tax authorities website. Instead you can now search for individual charities at this website.

May 21, 2019 update: the list is available again, at https://www.belastingdienst.nl/wps/wcm/connect/bldcontentnl/themaoverstijgend/brochures_en_publicaties/open_data_anbi.

May 19, 2020 update: The current file includes data on 52,539 nonprofit organizations, including organizations that are no longer registered. The file is updated weekly. In total, 43,982 organizations are currently registered.
