Regardless of the amount, 66% of your donation is eligible for an income tax deduction. If this deduction exceeds 20% of your taxable income, the excess can be carried forward for five years.
For example, a €100 donation really only costs €34 since you benefit from a €66 tax deduction.
Regardless of the amount of your donation, you will receive special benefits in thanks from the museum (free subscription to Coulisses, the e-newsletter for donors, private tours of the museum, personal acknowledgements on the Louvre website, etc.).

It’s a gift!

You can also dedicate your online donation to a friend or loved one. This person’s name will appear in the list of people to whom the museum would like to pay tribute and express its thanks.
