Why donate ?

  • Support projects related to Perfume, Smell or Olfaction, carried out in particular by the partners selected on their work for the benefit of new projects.
  • Contribute to the production and visibility of important projects for research or the constitution of French intangible heritage related to perfume.
  • In addition, you benefit from significant tax advantages since your donation is tax deductible.
Tax deductible donation
Making a donation to the Per Fumum Endowment Fund entitles you to a tax reduction :

  • or on companies (IC) up to 60% of the amount of your donation
