Taxation in the service of action and donation: whether you are a French resident or not, you can make a tax-deductible donation to Apprentis d’Auteuil. You can equally choose to support all the foundation’s activities or a specific project.

You are an individual taxed partially or fully in France

Wealth tax (ISF)
The article 885-0 V bis A du CGI (General Tax Code) authorises a taxpayer bound by the ISF to a tax reduction of 75% for all donations in cash and donations in full property of corporate securities admitted to negotiations on a French or International official market, made in profit of a registered charitable foundation within the limit of 50,000€ (that being a donation of 66,667€). This limit is brought down to 45,000€ (that is a donation of 60,000€) if you also deduct an investment in the capital of a PME (small and medium size business).

Income tax (IR) – You are "non-resident Schumacker"
The 1. of article 200 of the CGI indicates that the reduction of IR does not only benefit "taxpayers living in France according to article 4 B (of the CGI)". Consequently, a non-resident individual in theory cannot benefit from the IR reduction measures for donations made to general interest associations/registered charitable association. However, the administration extends the benefits of tax advantages to people considered "non-residents Schumacker" (BOI-IR-RICI-20130730, point 20). It is regarding taxpayers resident in other European Union countries, in Iceland or Liechtenstein, and who earn most of their income in France. In this situation : Your donation is deductible to the amount of 75% within the limits of 521€. Beyond that, a deduction of 66% applies (within the limit of 20% of taxable income).

You are a company with headquarters in France

Since the law of August 1, 2003 called Aillagon, companies benefit from a tax reduction of 60% of the amount of the donation made to a general interest association within the limit of 0.5% of its sales figures (excluding tax).
Beyond that, the deduction of the excess is done by way of the following five financial years. In the case of practical skills transfers or contribution in kind, an evaluation of the financial valuation of the donation is linked to paying off equipment lent or given or even the amount of hours personnel are seconded.
