Companies and foundations
Your contribution can take the form of a cash donation or a donation in kind. Donors are entitled to a range of exclusive, personalised rewards: your company name linked prominently with the museum, hosting of prestigious receptions, invitations to special events and tours (visit the archives and the collections, advance private views of exhibitions etc.).
The tax benefits associated with patronage of the arts in France allow you to deduct 60% of the total value of your donations from your corporation tax bill, up to a maximum threshold of 0.5% of your pre-tax turnover (any excess can be spread over the following five years if you exceed this threshold, or if a donation is made in a year of negative profits).
Any contribution in appreciation of the Musée Cognacq-Jay, however modest, is always welcome.
Giving a cash gift entitles you to a tax credit equivalent to 66% of your donation, up to a maximum of 20% of your taxable income (if this threshold is exceeded the difference may be spread over the next 5 years).
The Museums of the City of Paris also accept donations and inheritances, and can be named as whole or partial beneficiaries of life insurance contracts.
