Public donations to charities drop in France

Public donations to charities have dropped in France - Public donations to charities  have dropped sharply in France in 2018, plunging by more than 6.5 percent on last year, with some forecasting an overall 10 percent fall. France Générosité – a union representing 97 charitable organisations nationwide – reported a €200 million shortfall in the €2.9 billion collected on average each year. The union largely attributes the drop to recent changes in the country’s tax system, including the government’s decision in 2018 to replace a tax on wealth with a property tax.
