Corporate and private donors

A Grants Fund is, in France, a financial instrument that allows public, non-profitmaking organizations such as universities and schools to receive donations aimed at assisting a person to fulfill their education. It also offers fiscal advantages for the donor as payments received by the Fund are considered for tax purposes as sponsorships.

  • Private individuals benefit from a reduction in their French revenue taxes equal to 66% of the sum donated, limited to 20% of the taxable revenue (Cf. Article 200 of the French Tax Code). There is no reduction of the wealth tax.
