"there is a recovery of the generosity, but it does not compensate for the decline exclusively due to change in tax 2018," says France's generosity to the Figaro. The year 2018 was, in fact, been marked by "many tax reforms", says the union, such as the transformation of the TFR, the increase of the CSG or the establishment of withholding at the source. Reforms that had created a climate of uncertainty, decrypts the union, leading to the reduction of donations in France.

rising again, the donations are, therefore, their level of 2016. In detail, this is not the number of donors who climbs. On the contrary. Between 2009 and 2019, the number of new donors fell by 15%, according to France's generosity. It is therefore on the evolution of the amounts that made the difference. For example, the share of large donors has increased five-fold in 15 years, note France generosities. "For years, the donors are faithful and increase their average donation," says the union. Thus, in 2019, the donations of more than € 10,000 accounted for 10.8% of total amount of donations received, compared to 8.3% in 2013. At the same time, donations of less than 150 euros, if they remain very significant, only account for 45.5% of all donations, up from 70% 15 years ago.Updated Date: 23 June 2020, 10:47
