The Friends of IDEO

How can you help us? Since 1992, the French association “The Friends of IDEO” supports our activities. Headquartered in Paris (France), the association’s mission is to fund IDEO’s projects and activities. Its chairman is Mr. Bruno Racine, former chairman of the French National Library. You can visit the presentation of the association (in French), and make donations in euros by various ways, including through our website (in French). You can also become a member of the association, and receive its printed newsletter. All donations to the association entitle you to a tax deduction in France.

If you are in Egypt, or not interested in tax deductions in France or in the United States, please contact us directly by sending an email .

Planned Giving

The International Dominican Foundation is aware that many people generously wish to make larger gifts in support of non-profits and charities such as IDF.  This allows a donor to provide for their charitable giving apart from their regular incomes.  Some people use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for a charity and their heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.  For more information on Planned Giving please get in touch with the IDF office ().

Charitable Funds

Some of our benefactors would like to establish for the on-going goals of their choice, such as an endowed fund for student scholarships, for scholarly research, or the ongoing practical support of institutions.  IDF at present has several such funds and they have been our most consistent way of meeting the needs of the IDF projects.  If you would like more information please write us at: International Dominican Foundation; United States National Office; 1 Galleria Blvd., Suite 710-B; Metairie, LA 70001; USA.
