Why support the Bollandists?
If we except a small subsidy from the Belgian «Fondation Universitaire» for the journal Analecta Bollandiana, the Société des Bollandistes has to sustain its activities entirely by its own means. Maintaining the library at a level of excellence, confronting the costs of new publications and, above all, engaging in new projects is a constant challenge.
In order to support the Bollandists’ activities a fund has been created by the Belgian Fondation Roi Baudouin (FRB/KBS).

Here is how to proceed for tax deductible donations:
In the Benelux, France and Denmark, tax deductible donations can be made directly on the Bollandist Fund managed by the Fondation Roi Baudouin — Koning Boudewijn Stichting (FRB/KBS) through bank transfer to the FRB/KBS account number: IBAN: BE10 0000 0000 0404 with the reference: 182/0420/00048 or Bollandist Fund.
- In Belgium: a gift of 40 euros or more made via FRB/KBS entitles you to a tax reduction of 45% of the amount actually paid and stated on the certificate.
In the USA, you can support our activities in a tax-efficient way through a contribution to the American Friends of the Bollandist Society at the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS). Because KBFUS is a public charity, within the meaning of Sections 501(c)3 and 509(a)1 of the IRC, donors may claim the maximum tax benefits allowed by U.S. tax law for their contributions. If you wish to support us, here is how to proceed:
- Gifts by check: Write your check to KBFUS with the mention “American Friends of the Bollandist Society” in the memo section and send it to KBFUS, 551 Fifth Avenue, Suite 2400, New York, NY 10176
- Gifts by wire transfer or for contributing other types of property, please contact KBFUS: Phone: (212) 713 7660.
