Make a donation from outside of France

The ICM, authorized by the Fondation de France, can now receive donations from the TGE (Transnational Giving Europe). When making a donation to the ICM, the donors of certain European countries benefit from fiscal advantages in their own country.
Open / close summary

The TGE is a partner of European foundations and associations. It enables donors – private persons and companies – that pay taxes in one of the partner countries of TGE, to support charitable organisations in other member countries, while benefitting from the fiscal advantages of their country of residence.

The Fondation de France established this agreement. Thanks to this new arrangement, European donations to the Institut du Cerveau – ICM can transit via one of the 19 European partners of the Fondation de France, according to the specific modalities of each of the countries (see the annex).

At present, 19 countries are members of the TGE network via foundations present on their territory. The Institut du Cerveau – ICM can emit fiscal receipts for the donors of these countries:
