Retour Support the MAHJ

The museum needs your support to enrich its collections, organise new exhibitions, renew its permanent collection, run its auditorium and educational programmes and more broadly promote the arts and history of Judaism.

As an individual, you can help the museum in several ways:

  • By donating money to the MAHJ or the Foundation you can benefit from substantial tax deductions:
    • The museum has Musée de France status, therefore donations are tax-deductible up to 66% of the amount and up to 20% of assessed revenue (if this percentage is exceeded the deduction can be spread over the following five years). Thus, for example, a gift of 1,000 € will cost you only 340 €.
    • If you decide to donate money to the Foundation, since it is a state-approved non-profit-making organisation you can opt for a deduction of 66% of your donation from your income tax under the conditions described above, or for a deduction of  75% of your gift from wealth tax, up to 50,000 €.
  • By donating an artwork to the museum: the museum’s collections have already been considerably enriched thanks to the generosity of individual donors.
  • By a bequest of money or in kind: the Fondation pro-MAHJ, affiliated to the museum and a state-approved non-profit-making organisation, is entitled to receive bequests in exoneration of inheritance tax: the heirs therefore have no tax to pay on the sums or artworks bequeathed.
  • By voluntary work: several volunteers are already working in the museum, particularly in the Media Library.

Companies and foundations can also support the museum, by financial sponsorship or by providing expertise. In return, the museum can provide advantages and services jointly defined from a wide range of possibilities, including the use of museum spaces for company functions, private tours of the museum, free visits for company employees and acknowledgement of the company’s sponsorship in the museum’s press communication, advertising and publications..

The Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme would like to thank all the donors who have supported the museum since it opened.
