Accountability for the ANBI Status
Zen River has been awarded the ANBI status – Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling, i.e. Public Benefit Organization – by the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration on January 1, 2008. As such, gifts from private donators to Zen River can be deducted against income tax within the Netherlands (and possibly other countries).
As one of the requirements for its ANBI status, the religious community Zen River has to publish this standard form (in Dutch) on its website.
