What are exactly the "tax issues" ?

Do you want the donations to be tax-deductible, such as those to
a charity, such as e.g. the Red Cross ?

Do you want this to be the case in the single country of the EU
where the Not For Profit (SPI Spain in this case ?) is located
or all accross Europe ?

Do you have other tax issues ?

When I understand you request exactly, I could check with my
accountant on the exact status and conditions of that (but
maybe all that work already happened before I joined the
list ?).
