Donate to CAPSH

Our association welcomes donations:

Donations to the association are tax-deductible in France: CAPSH has the status of "association d'intérêt général" and is subject to article 200 and article 238 bis of the French general tax code. For individuals paying taxes in France, this means that you can deduce 66% of your donation from your taxes (up to a limit of 20% of your taxable income): with this deduction, donating 50 EUR only costs you 17 EUR, for instance. If you would like to apply this, please make sure that we have a way to send you the receipt by email, in particular if you are donating via Bitcoin or by cheque.

As of this writing, donations are mainly used to rent the three servers that power Dissemin, whose cost amounts to around 1800 EUR/year. Thanks a lot for supporting us!
