Platform for marine research

Your gift makes sea research possible!

Are you passionate about the sea and do you wish to support marine research? That is possible through VLIZ philanthropy The Sea as a Good Cause, the only good cause in Flanders that focuses on marine research. The VLIZ philanthropy projects generate worldwide new scientific knowledge in benefit of a sustainable future for the seas and ocean, so that you can keep on enjoying the sea!

You can make a gift online with the form below or transfer a donation to the bank account number IBAN BE70 0017 1687 3425 (BIC GEBABEBB) of Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee vzw (Bank: BNP Paribas Fortis. Address: Centrumplein 8a, 8450 Bredene).
Gifts for The Sea as a Good Cause are temporarily extra beneficial!

To limit the impact of the corona crisis on donations to good causes, the federal government is temporarily increasing the tax reduction for donations - as from EUR 40 - made in 2020 from 45% to 60%.
In short, if you donate EUR 100 in 2020, it will only cost you EUR 40!

Gifts as from EUR 40 per year qualify for tax deduction. If you wish to receive a tax certificate, please fill in your surname, first name, address and VAT number (in case it concerns a company). Individuals outside Belgium should consult their nation's tax code.
