In 1930, American philanthropists and Francophiles Homer & Mabel Gage’s extraordinary fundraising campaign made it possible to build a unique house for American students in Paris at the Cité internationale, a green campus of 40 houses in a 90-acre park. They shared the ideals of the Cité’s founders: by living together and sharing the best years of their lives, students from all over the world would build peace for the future.
The Fondation des Etats-Unis is a unique building dedicated to Franco-American friendship, its upkeep and preservation is key to maintaining affordable housing for a diverse population of American and international students in Paris in Paris.
Since its construction, donors have played a leading role in supporting the Fondation des Etats-Unis. As an independent non-government organization, the Fondation relies on individual and corporate generosity to meet its yearly operating expenses. Individual and corporate donors can benefit from a tax credit while supporting the Fondation des États-Unis.
The United States House is now launching a new fundraising campaign to renovate its magnificent Art-Déco building, its Grand Salon and library, its artists’ studios and spacious individual rooms, all in a spirit of sustainability and innovative eco-friendly building practices.
