Thanks to the generosity of its donors, the French Red Cross Foundation supports research excellence in humanities and social science and is committed to building the future of humanitarian and social action.

Join us in supporting humanitarian and social research

By giving to the French Red Cross Foundation, you are helping us to put research at the service of innovative action, which is adapted to evolving crises and contexts and gives a voice to the most vulnerable people. And thanks to its high social utility, your donation is tax deductible at 75% with regard to real estate wealth tax (IFI), or 66% with regard to income tax.

2018 IFI Reform

With the 2018 Finance Law, the solidarity wealth tax (ISF) became the IFI, the real estate wealth tax. Effective since January 1st 2018, It now concerns real estate that is not assigned to the owner’s professional activity (with a 30% deduction for the primary residence). The tax threshold remains fixed at 1 300 000 € and the tax scale is identical to that of the ISF.

The fiscal advantages which you can benefit from regarding this tax remain unchanged. If you are liable for IFI in 2018, 75% of your donation to our Foundation can be deducted from your taxes (up to a maximum of 50 000€, corresponding to a 66 667 € donation). A donation of 500 €, for example, will end up costing you only 125 €.

The IFI calendar remains unchanged with the advent of the new law, and your donations must be made before the reporting deadline for your IFI. As a precautionary measure, we recommend that you send us your support before May 2018.
