Bequests, Life Insurance Policies, & Donations
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.

GIFT: DONATE YOUR UNUSED ESTATE
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.
BEQUEST: TRANSMIT YOUR VALUES BY A WILL
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.
