Since the health crisis, research has become a priority for a majority of French people.
Rare diseases affect 3 million people in France, 75% of whom are children. These are vulnerable families waiting for an answer, a diagnosis, or a treatment for which the Foundation For Rare Diseases has become a key player thanks to its actions in favor of research.
Thanks to the privileged ties it maintains with its corporate partners, a significant portion of the Foundation's resources comes from the generosity of its committed benefactors. These collaborations are essential not only from a financial point of view but also, and above all, for creating synergies and exchanges.

The Foundation For Rare Diseases, recognized as a public utility, is authorized to issue tax receipts to its donors.
As a company, by making a donation as part of a sponsorship, you benefit from an advantageous tax reduction: 60% of the amount of the donation, up to a limit of €20,000 or 5% of annual turnover excluding tax. Beyond that, the excess payment can be carried forward to the next five years.
Thus, a donation of €10,000 is actually €4,000.
There are two forms of support: patronage (support provided with little or no compensation) which implies a tax reduction and sponsorship (support provided in exchange for communication) without tax reduction.
Patronage is a donation made to the Foundation, without expecting any equivalent consideration in return. Its objective is to promote the 'institutional' image of your company and it can be assimilated to a donation for tax purposes. The patronage donation can be made in various forms:
- Financial sponsorship (contribution of a cash amount to a structure eligible for sponsorship)
- The patronage of skills (provision of personnel to a structure eligible for patronage, free of charge)
- Product sponsorship (consists in offering free of charge goods registered in the fixed assets register, or goods in the stock account)
- Technological sponsorship (technology available or used by the company is mobilized for the benefit of a beneficiary of general interest)
The donation in patronage implies a tax receipt offering the company a tax reduction at two levels:
- For the fraction of the donation less than or equal to €2 million, the tax reduction is equal to 60% of this amount.
- For the fraction of the donation exceeding €2 million, the tax reduction is equal to 40% of this amount
However, the tax reduction cannot exceed €20, 000 or 5 ‰ (5 per thousand) of the annual turnover excluding tax (ceiling applied to all payments made). The tax reduction is applicable to the payments made during the closed financial years (closing on each December 31).
Sponsoring is the support of one of our events or the Foundation with the aim of obtaining a profit. The Sponsor is looking for a way to advertise and therefore sponsoring is considered as an advertising service. Any sponsorship expense corresponds to a 'commercial' operation and is therefore subject to VAT.
