Planned giving

Through bequests, notarised donations and life insurance policies you can keep supporting IHES on the very long term.

The Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques being a foundation in the public interest, bequests, notarised donations and life insurance policies benefitting IHES are exempt of inheritance tax in France.

Passing on one’s estate is an important act. We advise you to contact your notary beforehand. They will be able to provide you with all the information you need to take a thoughtful and fully informed decision,

The planned giving professionals at IHES will be pleased to help you design and implement your project. Please let us know if you would like to receive the IHES “Planned Giving” brochure confidentially and with no obligation.
