Why Donate

Since its construction, donors have played a leading role in supporting the Fondation des États-Unis international students. As an independent non-government organization, the Fondation relies on individual and corporate generosity to meet its yearly operating expenses.


Your contribution can help materialize several projects that are critical for the upkeeping of the Fondation des États-Unis. Current projects include:

    • the renovation of the art and music studios (installing a mezzanine and updating the soundproofing, integrating a bathroom, modernizing the furniture)
    • improving the standard rooms by integrating bathroom units and modernizing the furniture
    • changing the original concrete floors, which are in bad repair and cannot be repaired in the original style
    • moving the laundry room to the basement and creating a kitchen for ground floor residents
    • renovating the communal kitchens, and expanding the 5th floor kitchen
    • creating a soundproofed music studio in the basement
    • decorating and refurbishing the recreation room in the basement


You can also help fund the Fondation’s vibrant cultural program by sponsoring one of the events or equipment necessary to produce them. To read more about the Fondation’s cultural season, please see here
