As a company

The mobilisation of businesses—whether for a financial investment, a donation in kind or a gift of skills—is a key success factor in the Sorbonne University strategic plan. 
Within the framework of a long-term partnership, you are involved in a field that is in line with the campaign's priorities, in accordance with your business sector and your innovation strategy:

  • Expand an interdisciplinary approach through the creation of research chairs;
  • Nurture talent through the funding of scholarships and bursaries;
  • Build a stimulating environment by acquiring state-of-the-art equipment or implementing projects to modernise or renovate our infrastructures.

As a sponsor, and in return for the commitment made, your company benefits from exclusive advantages (putting you in touch with researchers, students and others).

    Your tax advantages

    Income tax (IR): your donation to the Foundation entitles you to a reduction equal to 66% of the amount of your support, up to a limit of 20% of your taxable income (art. 200 of the CGI).

    Through your donations to the Sorbonne University Foundation, you can participate in the "Welcome to the Future" campaign and support our research projects, education or the University's infrastructures, while reducing your IFI.

    The 2018 Finance Bill confirmed the abolition of the Wealth Solidarity Tax (ISF) as of 1 January 2018 and its replacement by the Real Estate Wealth Tax (IFI), which now applies to real estate assets not allocated to the professional activity of their owner. Investments in SMEs are no longer deductible from the IFI.

    The Real Estate Wealth Tax (IFI) is calculated on net taxable real estate assets above 1.3 million euros, i.e. on the value of real estate (fixed or movable) that are taxable after the deduction of debts, as of 1 January of the year. 

    You can reduce your tax and even reduce your IFI to zero by making a donation to the Sorbonne University Foundation if you stay within the 50,000 euro deduction limit. The calculation is simple - divide the amount of your Real Estate Tax by 0.75. For example, if you have to pay €1,500 in Real Estate Tax, you can deduct your tax in full by making a donation of €2,000.

    If you make your donation online, you will receive your tax receipt immediately by email, and it will reach you by mail in the next few weeks. It will not be necessary to attach the tax receipt showing the IFI tax reduction. However, the tax authorities are entitled to request it in the event of an audit.

    You can also support Sorbonne University and benefit from tax benefits, via a bequest, a life insurance policy, a temporary donation of usufruct, a donation of shares...

    Legacy: passing on your assets in a will

    A bequest is a gift that a person can will to another person. As of today, you can make a bequest to the Fondation Sorbonne Université. 
    Until the day of his or her death, the donor remains the owner of the bequest and can modify his or her will in whole or in part. 
    Your bequest may be for any type of property: real estate, furniture, stocks, bonds, cash, etc. 
    To be valid, a will must respect certain formalities. You can, for example, make an authentic will with the assistance of a notary. You can also make a holographic will on your own, written in full, dated and signed by you. 
    Any bequest to the Sorbonne University Foundation is exempt from transfer tax.

    Buying life insurance

    The life insurance agreement, a savings and capitalisation tool, can enable you to pass on capital to a beneficiary. 
    If you choose to take out life insurance, you can name the Fondation Sorbonne Université as the sole beneficiary or as one of several beneficiaries, specifying the percentage you wish to grant it.
