Venice has been hit by a terrible flood disaster that has caused great damage to buildings and artworks. The Dutch Poorters van Venetië (citizens of Venice), the Italian embassy and the Stichting Nederlands Venetië Comité (Foundation Dutch Venice Committee) have started the Red Venetië (Save Venice) campaign with the aim of collecting money to repair the damage caused by the flood. You can help with a donation or by registering for one of the Fundraising Days below. The money will be collected and managed by the Poorters van Venetië, who have been committed to Venice for decades. De Poorters are a cultural ANBI, which means that you can deduct your donation from income or corporation tax. Commissioned by the Poorters, the restorations are being carried out by Italian conservators who are among the best in the world.
