Make a gift through Friends of Fondation de France

As a registered 501(c)(3) public charity in the U.S., Friends of Fondation de France provides an easy way for American individuals, corporations and foundations to make tax-deductible donations  to charitable projects in France and in Europe. Each charitable project is carefully approved during our rigorous assessment process, so donors can rest assured that their gifts support trusted and effective nonprofits.

If you have considered giving to a French or an international charity in the past, you may have been discouraged after learning of the extra costs and added paperwork that accompany overseas donations. Furthermore, it’s often difficult to find information about an international recipient, their reputation and their credentials. Giving through Friends of Fondation de France is the simpler and less costly option. When you give to Friends of Fondation de France, you receive the same tax benefits that you would when giving to any other 501(c)(3) organization in the United States. Each charitable project is carefully vetted and approved by our Board of Directors to ensure legitimacy and effectiveness.
