Romanians choose church as beneficiary of their 2pc tax-income

A third of the tax-payers who have chosen to redirect two per cent of their 2009 taxes towards a non-profit unit have chosen church organisations, a GfK report shows. A release from the media research company shows that mainly urban citizens with higher salaries and various income sources have been aware of the fact they can redirect 2% of their annual taxes towards non-governmental organisations. Only 56 per cent of this category has actually acted towards this end. GfK points out that 29 percent of the resulting funds were directed towards churches and church organisations, and only 9 per cent were directed to humanitarian organisations such as Save the Children, Red Cross and Children in Need.
