As a current or former player/member, you may wish to donate to our Club, which receives little funding other than that of its current members and a few sponsors. All contributions, no matter how small, can help us to tremendous extents.
If you reside abroad, there is unfortunately no tax advantage to doing this, merely the satisfaction of helping out your old Club.
If you are a French tax resident subject to Income Tax, however, you can obtain an income tax reduction if you donate to BRFC.
On an amount that represents no more than 20% of your income tax, the French general tax code (article 200 CGI) allows a tax reduction of 66% on a donation made to a general interest association. As a not-for-profit Sports association, BRFC is entitled to issue certificates giving way to this income tax reduction.
Here is how it works: Say you know you are going to owe 3,000 Euros in Income Tax. You are allowed to give away a maximum of (3000 Euros X 20%) = 600 Euros. Your income tax reduction will be (600 Euros X 66%)=396 Euros, and the real cost for you is (600 Euros-396 Euros)=204 Euros. The reduction is automatically deducted from the amount you were initially owing to Tresor Public.
You can donate to the Club using either one of two very simple mechanisms:
1. Donate a lump sum using your Credit Card
Clicking on the “Donate” button below, you will be redirected to our 100% secure Paypal payment system. Simply write down the amount you wish to donate and proceed to payment.
2. Donate a lump sum or make monthly payments to the Club’s Bank Account

Thank you in advance for your help!
