In February of 2007 Habitat for Humanity Portugal was given non-profit status.
This means anyone can now donate a percentage of their IRS to Habitat for Humanity Portugal, thus contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of many Portuguese families, as that money will be channelled to the costruction/reconstruction of more more homes for families in need.
For you to donate from your IRS, all you have to do is as follows: write our VAT (503874264) in the following field: Table 11, in the IRS form.
It is important to say that this donation will not cost you anything because it is the government that is going to give that money in question.
