Accountability

The Cameroon works! foundation does everything in its power to make sure that the donations  benefit the parties involved as directly as possible. By keeping costs down to a minimum and by establishing direct contacts around the projects we ensure that the money ends up where it should.

Budgets for 2012, 2013, 2014 and annual reports  over these years will only appear on our website in dutch.

In addition we will associate ourselves with the organizations mentioned below to guarantee that the money ends up in the right place.

ANBI 

One of these days, Cameroon works! will be registered with ANBI (‘Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling’ – a ‘society for public welfare’) , which means that national quality requirements are met with respect to the way donated money is spent. Gifts made to charitable causes recognized as such by ANBI are tax-deductible under certain conditions. Specific rules in this regard are available at the Internal Revenue Service.

CBF

The CBF (Centraal Bureau Fondsverwerving – ‘Central Bureau for the Acquisition of Funds’) supervises charitable causes in the Netherlands. At the request of the institution acquiring funds, the CBF assesses the management and the policies of the institution, the manner in which funds are acquired and spent, and the reporting method. If the charitable causes meet the CBF’s criteria, they are officially approved and obtain the CBF certificate for small charitable causes. As soon as this is possible, we will register with the CBF.

The Cameroon Works! foundation uses the payment system of Targetpay, an organization supporting charitable causes, helping them to incur a minimum of expenses for the transactions of donations.

Furthermore, committee members are given no allowance for expenses; not even travelling expenses are reimbursed by the foundation. Thus, as much money as possible will be channelled into the projects.
