Why donate to Planète Urgence?
Your donations are essential
In 2020, 74% of the NGO Planète Urgence’s budget came from the generosity of individual donors or corporate sponsors. Each donation is therefore essential to allow the association to maintain its action programs, while proposing innovations so that everyone can live with dignity and autonomy in a preserved environment.
By giving to Planete Urgence, you allow to accomplish 3 essential missions :
- Protect the endangered forests and biodiversity.
- Promote the local development of communities in 17 countries.
- Raise awareness on the environment among many children and adults.
All donations made for the association are deductible of 66% from your tax income.

Your donation is tax deductible
Any donation made to our recognized non-profit organisation reduces your income tax. This decrease will be effective as soon as you enter the amount of the payment on your tax return.
As an individual, you benefit from a tax reduction for donations made to PU, whose actions are part of acts of generosity. If you are subject from income tax, your donation to PU gives you the opportunity to reduce your income tax by 66% of the amount of your support, up to a limit of 20% of your taxable income. Any excess amount may be carried over to subsequent years and may then be subject to tax reduction.
For example, for a deductible donation of 500€ to PU, you will get 330€ tax reduction.
Once the donation has been made, whether it is an online donation or by check, regular or punctual, a tax receipt mentioning the amount of all the sums paid in euros in the years will be sent to you at the beginning of the following year to reference all your deductible donations. This receipt is to be kept as proof with the tax administration.

A donation for the “1 euro = 1 tree planted” operation will automatically be used to plant a tree in one of our intervention countries. This is made possible by a precise follow-up and tracking of donations internally, made possible by our Administrative and Financial Department.
However, this euro allows much more than “just” planting a tree. Through the construction of its reforestation projects, the funds collected allow for the financing of several aspects related to the planting of the tree. These components of economic development, awareness-raising and links with public policies are the guarantee that the action taken will be effective and sustainable in the long term.
This long-term development approach allows the communities concerned to perceive both the forest resource as an economic lever and the intrinsic richness of the tree in their environment.
Planting trees wherever possible is a necessity, and therefore trees must also be planted in France. However, Planète Urgence has chosen to prioritise the most critical areas in terms of biodiversity, the risk of deforestation and where the populations living near the forests are the most vulnerable.
In 2020, 87% of resources were allocated to the association’s operating costs and actions (forest preservation, environmental awareness and capacity building of local populations). Rigorous financial monitoring is carried out every year and published in our public activity report.
