Formalization

The foundation “UN COLLEGE FRANCAIS A AMSTERDAM”

On Wednesday, June 7, 2017 we went to the notary to sign the statutes of our foundation “Un Collège français à Amsterdam”.

Thanks to your donations (past and future), we formalized the school to move forward in our efforts. Thus, we will be able to target companies potentially interested in sponsoring a French secondary school in Amsterdam. As a result, they will be able to deduct taxes from their donations.

If you have any good contacts in companies possibly interested by the project, do not hesitate to let us know.

Feel free to help us financially – there is no small contribution:

Always with the aim of raising funds, we have a team of runners who have registered for the Stockholm marathon. Do not hesitate to sponsor them. All funds will go directly to the Foundation’s funding.

Thank you again for your help.

We need funds!

Dear friends,

It is now time to give us a real boost! We need some funding to create the foundation and to be able to continue our project.

Thus, we understand that everyone can not – still – reserve a place for his child by contributing 250 €, or even that everyone does not feel particularly concerned by the imminent opening of a secondary school in Amsterdam.

However we would like to be able to count on a small participation of those whom the project challenges or interests. If everyone gives 10, 20, 40 euros it could really allow us to move faster.

Thanks in advance – and do not forget that there is no small contribution 😉

If you want to know more do not hesitate to come to question us.

The college project team
