All those who love the Basilica of Assisi -- its history of faith and its beauty, always in need of development and preservation, its initiatives for culture and solidarity, always in need of promotion -- may support our efforts by donating your 5x1000 to the Foundation for the Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi on your next tax return.

The designation of the 5x1000 (an option on the Italian tax return forms) costs taxpayers nothing; but, at the same time, would serve as an important gift for the Friars and their ministry at the Basilica of Saint Francis. "We are the only art venue in the world for which an entrance fee is not charged; if you wish to support our efforts, please donate your 5x1000 to the Basilica. This designation of a part of your taxes will provide support for those who believe in the saintly figure of Saint Francis, as well as for lovers of art and of history."

How to allocate your 5x1000 to the Basilica?
It is very easy: just sign in the first box where it is indicated "Support of volunteer and other non-profit organizations of social importance" (Sostegno del volontariato e delle altre organizzazioni non lucrative di utilità sociale) and write in the appropriate space the tax code of the Foundation for the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi: 80052240548.
