Stop blindness in children

In the world of gen- and stemcell-therapy, there is hopeful medical development, but the need for funds for research is huge.
By donating to OOG you can help in the fight against blindness in children.

You can help in 3 various ways :

Structurally in the way of a ‘package’

By entering into a 5 year contract with Amsterdam UMC Foundation, your donations are fully deductible for Dutch Tax, without a threshold deduction. The Amsterdam UMC Foundation will invoice and collect the donation yearly. The entire proceeds of the donations are used for eye research, without any deductions for costs.

Choose your ‘package’ to suit your own resources from the following :

  • 5.000 Euro Yearly
  • 3.000 Euro Yearly
  • 1.000 Euro Yearly

This contract gives you membership of the OOG association. Click here for more information.

Incidental donation

Naturally it is possible to donate an amount incidentally, or pay a smaller monthly amount. We are grateful for all contributions. Our donation form can be used for this. 

Organize a fundraising event

If you wish to organize an event to raise funds, we can help you with advise on how to optimize your result. A lot of experience has been gathered over the last years, and our team will gladly share that with you.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is the difference between the different ‘packages’ of the structural donation?
    The only difference is the amount
    We are aware that financial capacity differs per person.
    This is why we ask people to choose the amount most suited to their individual financial situation. OOG has set its goal on raising significant funds for research into genetically hereditary eye diseases.
    Donations with a structural character are the best way to enable the continuation of eye disease research, necessary to acheive results. This is why we are asking for donations on a 5 year basis. An added advantage is that your gift is often eligible for 100% tax deduction.
    You can read more about this on the website of the Dutch Tax Board (Belastingdienst).
  • How does a structural donation work?
    Fill out the digitally available form at the top of this page to apply for a structural donation.
    On receipt an employee of Amsterdam UMC Foundation will contact you to formalize the registration, and agree on how to make the donation.

  • How is a structural donation beneficial to me?

    By donating on a structural basis you become an important part of the fight against blindness in children.
    Research and innovation are the only way in which to find a way to cure or stop these life disrupting disorders.

    Furthermore you will receive:

    • An invitiation to a yearly CONGRESS (free) at Amsterdam UMC location, on a Saturday, where you can take a look behind the scenes of the eye research programme. Explanation in understandable terminology will be given by the eye doctors and professors involved.
    • Three digital nieuwsletters yearly.
    • Lunch information sessions where further information and explanation about specific eye disorders will be the theme.
    • Participation in a (social) community of benefactors and associates of OOG, where experience and developments can be exchanged and shared.
