> money that may be had by the WMF..
> At the time when the WMF itself became registered as such, it was clear
> that it is possible to make it an European charity and by consequence make
> gifts in the whole of the European community tax deductible.
> I have in the past reached out to the WMF about this topic. I did not get

> PS I am professionally involved in raising funds for charities in the
