PATRONAGE AND SPONSORSHIP

According to French laws:

  • PATRONAGE

Becoming a patron (“mécène” in French) means providing a financial or material support, without expecting direct compensation from the beneficiary, to organisations or people in order to help them carry out projects of general interest.

  • SPONSORSHIP

Becoming a sponsor is the act of supporting an event, a person, a product or an organisation, with the objective of obtaining direct benefits.

FORMS OF SUPPORT

Your support may take several forms, from becoming a corporate sponsor to all the various options offered by patronage:

  • FINANCIAL PATRONAGE

Monetary donation
Financial donation to the benefit of a production, of an educational project, of Bordeaux National Opera Ballet tours...

  • IN-KIND PATRONAGE

Donation of durable goods

  • SKILLS PATRONAGE

Provision of services
Provision of skilled employees on a pro bono basis

TAX INCENTIVES

France offers one of the most favourable legal and fiscal frameworks in Europe: under the Act of 1st August 2003 related to Patronage in France, French tax residents are entitled to tax reductions.

  • If you are a French taxpayer

FOR CORPORATE PATRONS

60% reduction on corporate taxes (Impôt sur les Sociétés), for donations up to € 10,000 or 0.5% of the turnover (whichever is greater).
The donations exceeding this limit can benefit from tax reductions for the 5 following fiscal years.

FOR INDIVIDUAL PATRONS

66% reduction on income taxes (Impôt sur le Revenu), for donations up to 20% of the taxable income.
The donations exceeding this limit can benefit from tax reductions for the 5 following fiscal years.
