How can you support our projects?

Apart from financial support, you can also provide skills or make in-kind donations. Your support can take the form of donations, sponsorship or joint projects.

Receiving tax reductions

Making a donation to the Cité and the Palais means you can benefit from tax reductions.
Article 238 of the general tax code sets out a tax reduction rate equivalent to 60 % of the donation amount, up to a limit of 0.5 % of turnover before tax, for companies subject to income tax or corporation tax.
Sponsorship is considered a gift for tax purposes, and is therefore not subject to VAT.
Any payments not declared by the company in the corresponding fiscal year, due to the limit of 0.5 % of turnover before tax, can be carried over to the following year.
In order to benefit from these tax breaks, your company will be provided with a donation receipt (CERFA 11 580.03)
