Making a gift

Would you like to help our researchers to further knowledge in areas affecting human health and fight disease by making a gift? You can choose whether your gift will benefit:

  • medical research in general; the Institute will then allocate the sums donated to areas it considers priority,
  • a specific research area or research training course.

What is an informal gift?

An informal gift is a gift by which a living person (called the donor) or a legal entity (the patron) informally gives personal property (a sum of money, furniture, etc.) to another person (the donee).
A gift is something transferred with nothing directly or indirectly received in return, which means that the gift is made gratuitously by the donor.

How to make an informal gift

An informal gift may therefore be effected by a cheque or transfer of a sum of money into an account, without recourse to any legal document.

To make your gift, we advise you to write or type a letter stating that:

  • you wish to make a gift to INSERM (French National Institute for Health and Medical Research), for medical research in general, so that the Institute will then allocate the sums donated to the particular research project it considers most urgent; or
     
  • you wish to make a gift to Inserm for a clearly defined research project or research training course.
     
  • Any gift by cheque should be made out to Monsieur l'Agent Comptable Principal de l'Inserm.
     
  • You should send all these documents to:
    Inserm
