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.
Participating in an ecovolunteering mission means making a commitment by giving of one's time and contributing financially to the success of the biodiversity protection project for which one has committed. 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.

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).

For donor companies (eco-solidary leave)
The eco-solidarity leave is a way for employers and their employees to realize their commitment to biodiversity and the planet.
60% of the sums paid (including the Biodiversity Donation and the Membership) are deductible from corporation tax, in the limit of 0,5% of the turnover (article 238 bis of the CGI).

In practice

  • 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 upon your return from an ecovolunteer mission.
  • Donations that have received 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 students and jobseekers.

Participating in an ecovolunteering mission can allow you to experiment a trade or to acquire new knowledge or concrete experience. For many of you eco-volunteering will help you in your career or even sometimes reorient you. So that finances are not a limit to your future plans, and without modifying the amount of the donation donated to the partner project, Cybelle Planète has reduced the amount of the Biodiversity Grant to be collected for students and jobseekers.
