FAQ it till you make it

Here you can find answers to frequently asked questions about donations, calculating emissions and our carbon offset projects. Select a topic to get started.


Can I deduct my donation from tax?

Yes. The ClimatePartner Foundation gGmbH is a non-profit organization and authorized to receive donations. The climate protection contributions voluntarily paid by users are therefore recognized by German tax authorities as tax deductible.


Do I get a donation receipt?

In order to deduct the donation for tax purposes, for individual donations up to €200 you only need (1) the receipt of your means of payment (e.g. Paypal, excerpt from online banking) as well as (2) our payment receipt (PDF attached to the compensation confirmation mail), if the tax office requests it.

If you have made a single donation to us of more than € 200, you can request an official donation receipt here , stating your transaction number. We will then send them to you by email at the beginning of the following year.

Please note that the donation receipt for donations under € 200 can only be issued to the holder of the payment method used.
