At SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL, we believe in the increasing involvement of businesses in humanitarian action. Regardless of their size, they play a key role in our emergency responses; in our basic drinking water and sanitation infrastructure rebuilding and access projects.
Financial sponsorship, skills sponsorship, donations in kind, socially responsible products and services, internal mobilization and research partnerships are just some of the ways in which we can get involved and work together to help the most vulnerable communities.
Provide financial support for an emergency response operation or a rebuilding project. Areas include natural disasters and risk prevention, conflicts, migratory crises, access to drinking water and sanitation, and income-generating activities. The diversity of these crises and our focus areas means we can work together to identify a project that matches your desire to help.
We undertake to allocate your regular or occasional donation or gift to the country and project of your choice. You’ll be kept informed by our teams about how the mission is progressing, via regular activity reports and through our special relationship.
The partner businesses and foundations of SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL enjoy tax relief of 60% on their donation, up to a maximum of 0.5% of their turnover (Article 238a of the General Tax Code).

JP Labalette makes an annual donation to SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL’s emergency fund. In doing so, the insurance firm helps finance preparations and operations by our emergency team responding to disasters.
Enable your employees to collaborate with our teams at head office and on the ground, on both short and medium term projects. It’s an opportunity for them to work in a different and extremely fulfilling environment. And it’s an opportunity for you to communicate a message to your customers and all interested parties about a high-impact, win-win partnership.
For SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL, it’s an opportunity to swell our team, develop a new activity, benefit periodically from other expertise, and improve our organization. In 2016, our skills sponsors carried out more than €600,000 worth of free services.
Under certain conditions, our skills sponsors enjoy tax relief of 60% on the valued total of their service, up to a maximum of 0.5% of their turnover excluding VAT (Article 238a of the General Tax Code). Contact us to discuss your skills and our requirements.

Internal mobilisation campaign
You can organize internal collection events among your employees, all year round, or for emergencies only. You can choose to top up this collection and supplement it with financial sponsorship.
We’ll sent you a mobilization kit appropriate to your particular needs, including communication tools, an online donation module bearing your corporate livery, and a monthly donation tracker, etc. Every year, our SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL team will visit your business to talk to you about the impact of the actions that your fundraising has made possible.
Donations made by your employees and your business are tax deductible.
For more information about our mobilization kit, and for advice on how to set up an internal campaign, please get in touch!

The day after the earthquake in Nepal in 2015, VINCI backed its employees’ socially responsible commitment by topping up the donations made through an internal collection. Over €160,000 has been collected to meet the water, hygiene, sanitation and shelter needs of those affected in the Sindhupalchok district.
Socially responsible products and services
Donate a portion of the sale price of one of your products or services to SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL. Straightforward and unifying, this type of partnership responds to a socially responsible consumer demand that is ever-increasing, enhancing value for all those involved.
Your business chooses to reduce its margins in order to bolster its image and set itself apart from its competitors. It’s a way of increasing sales, attracting new customers, inspiring greater loyalty and strengthening the commitment of your employees.
Under certain conditions, socially responsible products and services can give rise to tax deductions.
