Become a patron

Devenir mécène

Becoming a patron of d'Aix-Marseille Université means choosing to make a donation to its foundation to support the university or one of its specific projects. This donation can be financial, in kind (premises, equipment, consumables, etc.) or materialized by skills sponsorship (free provision of a professional at Aix-Marseille University).
Supporting the university entitles companies and individuals to a tax reduction.
