AMF granted tax-deductible status for donors in Sweden


We are delighted to report that AMF now has tax-deductible status for donors in Sweden.

The Against Malaria Foundation has been granted tax-deductible status for donors by Skatteverket, Sweden's tax authority. It is effective from 26 January 2021 and runs through to 31st December 2024. Our organisation number is 502085-3775.

For a donor to qualify,

  • a minimum of 200 SEK* must be donated per gift occasion (individual donations below SEK 200 do not count towards the SEK 2,000 total)
  • a minimum of 2,000 SEK* must be donated per year (this does not need to be to the same charity)
  • taxpayers should include information about their donations in their tax return
  • AMF must submit qualifying donations to Skatteverket in the January following the prior calendar year’s end and our submission must include the donor’s social security number

A maximum of 6,000 SEK* is tax-deductible per donor (this does not all need to be to the same charity). The tax-deduction for donors is 25% of the donation amount.

Note: All online donations from Swedish residents automatically receive an acknowledgement with a link to a downloadable tax receipt. For those wishing to make donations by bank transfer or cheque, the relevant bank account and address information can be found on our donations page, and tax receipts are sent on request.


Rob Mather recognised by Queen Elizabeth II for his charity work


From the Trustees of the Against Malaria Foundation

We are delighted to inform all our supporters of the wonderful news that the Against Malaria Foundation’s founder and CEO, Rob Mather, has been awarded an MBE by Queen Elizabeth II in the 2021 New Year's Honours list for his 'services to medicine and charity'. These awards are given for major contributions to civil life and public service and, consequently, are held in very high esteem.

Rob founded AMF in 2004 and since then has worked tirelessly to raise funds and ensure that bed nets end up over the heads of those that need them. The success of AMF in achieving its goals is undoubtedly down to Rob’s vision, enthusiasm and commitment.

This award follows the Commonwealth Points of Light award in 2018, given to one individual from each of the Commonwealth nations for tackling global challenges. He was recognised for his outstanding work to reduce cases of malaria and child mortality across the world. The award was presented by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William on behalf of The Queen.
