Your Generosity is Encouraged

The American Hospital of Paris is a not-for-profit institution of recognized public benefit. This means you can benefit from an advantageous tax framework for every donation you make to the Hospital, whether you live in the United States, France, or elsewhere in Europe.

In France

As soon as we receive your donation, we will send you a tax receipt enabling you to claim your tax reduction.

  • Income tax

    66% of your donation amount can be deducted from your French income tax bill, with maximum savings of 20% of your taxable income. If the reduction exceeds this limit, the excess amount may be deducted over the following five years. 

  • Wealth tax on real estate assets (IFI)

    Deduct 75% of your donation amount from your French IFI tax bill, up to €50,000 (maximum donation of €66,667). 

    The tax receipt is the same in both cases. It is up to you to decide whether to use it to reduce your income tax bill or your IFI tax bill, since you are not allowed to receive multiple tax reductions for a single donation. You may choose to split your donation amount between the two taxes.

  • Corporate tax

    60% of your donation amount can be deducted from your French corporate tax, with maximum savings of 0.5 per cent of company revenue. If the reduction exceeds this limit, the excess amount may be deducted over the following five years.

deductible Cash gifts

Aux États-Unis

The American Hospital of Paris is authorized to issue U.S. tax receipts. As a registered 501 (c)(3), your gifts are tax deductible in the United States.

For individuals
Cash gifts to the American Hospital of Paris are deductible up to 50% of a donor’s federal adjusted gross income (AGI) for the year in which the contribution is made. If cash gifts exceed that 50%, then the donor may deduct the excess over the following five years, again up to 50% of the AGI for each carry-over year. 
Gifts of appreciated securities may offer even greater tax benefits than a gift of cash of equal value.   


For corporations
A corporation can deduct the value of property contributed up to 10% of the corporation’s adjusted taxable income for the year in which the contribution is made. If some portion of the deduction is not usable in the year of the contribution, then the corporation may carry over that unused portion for an additional five years.
