Firstly, a warm welcome at TRANSNATIONAL GIVING (TG)! TG formerly known as Maecenata International (MINT)  was founded in 2002 as non-profit association and partner of the network Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) with the purpose of faciliating the international donation transfer in Europe and beyond. Making cross-border giving easier and more transparent is the aim of TGE. Specifically, we forward earmarked foreign donations to German tax-advantaged organisations, and convey donations from Germany to the desired foreign destination. Since 2010 the project is integrated into the Maecenata Foundation.

The network Transnational Giving Europe (TGE) was brought into being in 1997 with sponsorship from the European Foundation Centre. The network has the job of making donation transfer abroad easier, by working with our partners. Working together is neccessary, in order to assure oneself through our partners that the foreign beneficiary is non-profit and that the project is of a sufficiently high quality.

Because no extant German foundation could complete the required tasks, the call for a German partner grew stronger and in 2002 Maecenata International was founded, which has acted as the German partner in the network ever since.
