Bequests, Life Insurance Policies, & Donations

Think that a legacy today, is a guarantee of the sustainability of tomorrow’s mobilization. Through this gesture, you will be reserving a better future for the generations to come by registering your values and your long-term commitment.

Since 1990, Surfrider Foundation Europe, monitors the protection of lakes, rivers, waves, the ocean and the coastline. This daily commitment aims to allow us to enjoy a preserved Nature and to protect our health which is dependent on marine environment. We are leading this battle for ourselves, but also for our children and for all those who will follow us.

To bequeath a legacy, a donation or transmit a life insurance policy is a committed and generous act which testifies your wish to support us and to transmit your values in time. Surfrider Foundation Europe will accompany you by respecting a strict code of ethics which will guarantee strict confidentiality communication as well as full respect of your wishes.


You can defend our cause in another way, by making us a partial or full beneficiary of your life insurance policy. It is a simple and quick way to participate in our projects by giving a meaning to your capital within an advantageous fiscal framework.

If you own a property or an asset that you no longer use, you can donate it to Surfrider Foundation Europe. A donation is formalized by a notary act during your lifetime and takes effect immediately. It takes into consideration the share that is legally reserved to your legal beneficiaries.

You can undertake a donation of full ownership (definite donation of a property with its full usage), a bare property donation (donation without usage) or a temporary donation of usufructuary (usage and beneficiary of income from a property for a minimum period of 3 years).

Donating to our Association gives you the right to a reduction of taxes equal to 66% of the amount of your donation, with a ceiling of 20% of your overall taxable income.


As a recognized Association of public interest, Surfrider Foundation Europe is not subject to inheritance tax laws, which means that there is no loss and that we receive the integral part of your chosen settlement to us (in presence of a Notary). You can bequeath the whole of your estate (united legacy), a share (partial united legacy) or a chosen donation (individual legacy) within the boundaries of the share that is reserved to your legal beneficiaries.

You can bequest property (apartments, houses….) or other assets (an amount of money, jewellery, a bank account, art objects…).

Each legacy given allows us to continue our actions on a long-term basis.

For any additional information concerning a legacy or a donation, do not hesitate to write to us !
