Your donations are tax deductible for income tax and solidarity wealth tax.

Whatever the value of your donation, 66% of the sum is tax deductible (up to a limit of 20% of taxable income, with any excess being carried over the next five years). For a donation made against wealth tax, 75% of the total donation is tax deductible up to a limit of €50,000, without any carryover option.

If you are resident outside France, in Europe or the United States, your donations to PAUSE are also tax deductible in your country of residence. Please contact us for further information.
