The fact that our museum is now in a position to present collections of outstanding quality is due to the generosity of donors, enthusiastic collectors and artists who have all contributed to its development.
Supporting the Petit Palais is a way of making your name part of the history of this prestigious institution, which work tirelessly and regularly to provide every type of visitor with a wide-ranging, high-quality cultural and artistic experience.
However large or small your contribution, your generous donation is a precious asset for the museums and a testament to your commitment to the community and your belief in the future.
How you can support us
There are several different ways in which a donation can contribute to the development and the impact of the museum:
The "Don Manuel"
A "gift by hand" (don manuel) consists of literally handing over various types of assets (e.g. paintings or cheques). It requires no special formalities or the involvement of a notary. On the other hand, it is possible to draw up a written "appended agreement " (pacte adjoint) acknowledging the transfer of the asset and which may include conditions. The appended agreement can be used to impose obligations on the recipient or to attach a usufructuary proviso to the donation. Any sum or work donated to the Petit Palais is deductible from the amount of income tax due the following year, up to 66% of the value of the donation, up to a maximum of 20% of taxable income.
To make a donation to the Petit Palais, you can send a cheque payable to "Paris Musées" by post to the following address:
27, rue des Petites Écuries
To receive a tax receipt and benefit from the tax reduction provided for in the French personal sponsorship scheme, please include a request to this effect in your letter. You will then receive a tax receipt at the postal address you have indicated.
A donation is a deed drawn up before a notary by which you irrevocably transfer the rights or ownership of a piece of property to the Petit Palais. It comes into effect immediately. Any sum or work donated to the Petit Palais is deductible from the amount of income tax due the following year, up to 66% of the value of the donation, up to a maximum of 20% of taxable income.
Making a bequest to the Petit Palais allows you to leave all or part of your assets after your death, in a will, to a place you care about, while enjoying your assets until the end of your life. Legacies to the Petit Palais qualify for an exemption from transfer fees.
* For legacies, gifts and donations of works, the acceptance of the donation shall be subject to the approval of the Paris Musées and DRAC academic committee for acquisitions.
The Petit Palais' patronage team is at your disposal to discuss and inform you about your support project.
