In Hungary, taxpayers have a possibility to donate 1 percent of their personal income tax payments to a civil organization.

Why to CEEweb?

Our organization has been working for over 25 years in more than 20 countries for the  conservation of biodiversity. We work to preserve nature, so for it to continue providing humankind its treasures, such as clean water and air.

How do we do that? For instance, one of our several activities relates to CEEweb’s Natura 2000 working group. Natura 2000 is a network of protected areas in Europe and, overall, all of its sites together represent one fifth of the total EU area. Among others, these areas are essential for providing ecosystem services, such as purifying water and air or even protecting against floods.

The importance of these sites can also be illustrated with figures: Every euro invested into Natura 2000 has a 30-50-fold return rate. Natura 2000 sites create around 6 million full time jobs. In Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, the restoration of 2.236 square kilometres of floodplains along the Lower Danube would cost 50 million euros, whereas flood protection, water purification and tourism benefits would reach 112 million euros. (To read more about ecosystem services, check out this publication).

Many CEEweb member organisations work in those nature protection areas and have tremendous knowledge on how to preserve them better. CEEweb works to include this knowledge into the process of further development and management of Natura 2000 areas, which are discussed on EU level.

In order for us to continue our work in the future, we need your support! Thus, please, donate this year your 1% to our organization!

How to:

To donate the 1 percent, go to to this form, fill it in, print  it and send it together with your tax report in a sealed envelope.

The tax number of CEEweb is 18413483-1-41. Please, write your name, address and tax number on the envelope and sign it across the sealed flap. The deadline for sending the declaration is 20 May 2019.

If you have sent the tax report already, you may still send the 1 percent declaration to the National Tax and Customs Administration of Hungary (NAV) by that deadline in a separate envelope, in which your name, address and tax number have to be written on the envelope and signed across the sealed flap.
