Weil attorneys in Paris and Warsaw have obtained a ruling from the French tax authorities officially recognizing the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation as one of the few foreign entities to which bequests and donations can qualify for full tax exemption.

The Foundation, based in Poland, seeks donors around the world in order to fund its missions and to preserve the integrity of the site of the former German death camp. With this new status, the Foundation will have access to French donors willing to support its missions.

Weil reports that it "proudly served as pro bono counsel in creating the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation and setting up an endowment fund in Poland. This endowment fund was fully established in 2014, and its completion was announced in February 2015 in a well-attended and highly publicized event on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp."

The Weil team was led by Associates Frederic Bosc in Paris and Associate Marek Kanczew in Warsaw.
