Tax Benefits

Private donors and businesses can receive tax credit. The FEU provides certificates for donations made in France.

In France

  • Income Tax
    Under 1000€, 75% of your donations can be deducted from your taxes. Above this limit, 66% of your donations can be deducted from your taxes, up to 20% of your taxable income. If your contribution exceeds this annual limit of 20% of your taxable income, the excess is carried forward over the next five years (including the fifth year). Please see here for further details.
  • Wealth Tax (IFI Impôt sur la fortune)
    If you must pay the IFI, 75% of the amount of your donation is deductible from your IFI, up to a maximum deduction of €50,000. A donation of 2000€ for example, will return to 500€ after tax deduction.
