Organisation

ANBI-status

Museum Collectie Brands is designated as an ANBI (Public Benefit Organisation) by the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst). At least 90% of the efforts of an ANBI have to be dedicated to the general benefit of the public.

The museum’s ANBI status means that the museum does not have to pay tax on inheritances or capital gains. Therefore, every euro of your donation will directly benefit the museum. A donation to institutions with an ANBI status also has certain tax advantages for benefactors. For more information about this subject, please visit the Belastingdienst website.

Remuneration policy

Members of the Management Board and advisors to the Stichting tot Behoud van de Culturele en Historische Collectie Brands do not receive any remuneration for their work. The members of the Management Board of the Stichting Nieuw Dordrecht Historisch en Cultureel Collectie Brands receive a payment of €60 for every meeting they attend.

Five paid professionals work part-time for Museum Collectie Brands (museum manager, curator, PR & communications officer, educational officer and collection management officer). The salaries are partly funded by a grant from the municipality of Emmen (since Museum Collection Brands is included in the Cultuurnota 2022-2024 ‘De Waarde van Cultuur’ (Cultural Policy) and a grant from the Mondriaan Fund. Salaries are determined in accordance with the guidelines of the Museum Collective Tariff Agreement. A sixth part-time paid employee works in administration. Agreements have been made with the UWV (Employee Insurance Agencies) on this.

Museum Collectie Brands is an organisation that largely depends on volunteers. They donate their volunteer’s fees and / or (travel) expenses through an annual ANBI (Public Benefit Organisation) declaration.

Where volunteers in the organisation lack knowledge and experience, experts are employed on a project basis. The costs of this are as far as possible covered with the aid of project grants. We work – as far as possible – on the basis of non-cash sponsoring, particularly for technical work in and on the building.
