Your donation Biodiversity

The ecovolunteer program of Cybelle Planète does not benefit from any public or institutional funding, except the tax deduction, so it depends on corporate patronage and donations from individuals.
Business or individual, your donation Biodiversity is a concrete way to help the association Cybelle Planète and its partners to continue our actions for biodiversity and citizens.

The Cybelle Planète association works in partnership with biodiversity conservation programs. These are located in various places on the planet; they have all been the subject ofrigorous selection on our part as well as regular monitoring of the results acquired.

The programs we work with receive very little external financial assistance, and most of them are dependent on donations from nature lovers and eco-volunteers. Whether you are an ecovolunteer or not, your donation will allow these programs to continue their project over time.

Give, whether you are ecovolunteer or not

The Biodiversity donation is for:

  • To those who simply wish to make their financial contribution to Cybelle planet and its partner programs.
  • Or, eco-volunteers who, in addition to their financial donation, will leave to join the program to help them for a few weeks. In all cases, your money will be treated in the same way and largely donated to the program (s) concerned.

Tax deduction

Each gift made to Cybelle Planète is eligible for a tax deduction (For companies or persons subject to corporation tax or income tax in France).

Practical details

  • The tax receipt is issued in the name and first name of the person who made the payment of the donation.
  • Your tax receipt will be sent to you at the end of the current year, for simple donors, or upon your return from an eco-volunteering mission for eco-volunteers.
  • Donations subject to a tax receipt are not refundable.

Why does the amount of the Biodiversity Gift differ according to the mission?

Each project has its own needs (equipment, personnel, ..) and can be very different from one mission to another. This amount, associated with the cost of hosting ecovolunteers, will serve as a basis of calculation to define the minimum amount of Don Biodiversity that we must collect for each mission.

Thus the Biodiversity Gifts are calculated as accurately and adapted to each ecovolunteer mission.

A reduced biodiversity donation for eco-volunteering missions of minimum 3 weeks

Mission durations of a minimum of 3 weeks are favored, minimum time estimated for the mission of the ecovolunteer to have a sufficient impact for a territorial compensation, carbon compensation remains optional. The 2-week missions will, for their part, be implemented with an additional donation, which will contribute to an offset fund, which will finance the carbon offset programs selected by Cybelle Planète as well as the development of new partnerships with conservation of biodiversity.
