I haven't found anywhere that associations registered in an EU country are
automatically recognized in Spain, about tax deductions. The current law which
is from March 2002, so it should have get any EU directive if any
about this, and only recognizes the ability for foreign associations
to open a delegation in Spain.

The other problem is that bank fees for money transfers are quite
high. Although they have reduced since Euro introduction, they're
high and a big load for little donations. EU Comission is right now
pressing banks to reduce them, so they will tend to be lower. Anyway,
this leaves out any country out of the Euro zone.
