Arcigay fulfills its goals with specific programs and initiatives in different fields and areas of interest. You can make a one-time donation, or recurrent donations: a recurrent donation helps us to better plan our activities. Moreover, when you pay Italian taxes, you can have tax breaks: for more info about Italian tax breaks, see here (in Italian).
What you make possible with your donation
Below you will find the buttons for the donation procedure. If you don’t choose any area of interest for your donation, Arcigay will decide in which area to invest, on the base of the needs and priorities. If you choose an area of interest, your donation will support the programs and initiatives of that area, but the organization will use 12% of your donation to cover the structural costs which permit the overall functioning of its activity (including programs and initiatives).
