The Cardio-Vascular Research Foundation-Institut de France is entitled to receive your legacies, donations and life-insurancies

Your questions and our answers : 

Why give a legacy to the Cardio-Vascular Research Foundation-Institut de France? ?

By making the choice to support our case, you will demonstrate your support for the battle against this modern scourge, the cardio-vascular diseases. Your solidarity for helping us fight against this epidemic is for us a valuable tool, allowing us to launch the innovative research programmes which will improve the health of your heart.

A legacy allows you to transfer part or the totality of your assets. In a testament you can express your last wishes and these will become effective after your fading away.

Is there a minimum amount for a legacy to the Cardio-Vascular Research Foundation-Institut de France? ?

All your donations are a great contribution to make top research possible. There exists no minimal amount for a legation.

Is it possible to support the Cardio-Vascular Research Foundation-Institut de France while you are alive ?

There are different ways of support efficiently our Foundation during your lifetime.

  1. Thanks to the donation, which is a non-disputable transmission of the transfer of rights or a property of an asset during your lifetime, you will contribute to accelerate the research on cardio-vascular diseases and you could judge by yourself directly of the influence of your donation
  2. By choosing a life-insurance you are privileging a simple transmission with a financial profit. It is completely tax-exempt for all payments made to your insurance contract. Our Foundation is assuring you the efficiency of your support,, according to our status.

How will all formalities be handled ?

Because of the fact that a legacy or a donation is a serious approach, demanding time and reflection, we are inviting you to approach the Institut de France and our service for the foundations, which will guide you and answer all your administrative and judicial questions
