The Foundation acts like a commercial enterprise with management, president and general director, as well as a non-profit organisation. It performs the tasks of a public institution, historical research about the deportation and information transfer to the families. Because of its pedagogical and historical tendency, the foundation was accepted as charitable on 17th october, 1990 by an ordinance of the administrative tribunal, signed by the prime minister and the minister of the Interior. The Foundation is under the patronage of the French president.

Accepted as charitable organisation by the state
The following definition results from the law of July 23rd, 1987: “A foundation is an operation, by which a physical or moral person will be granted an irrevocable gain of goods, rights and means to realise a common and charitable work.”
This „irrevocable gain” is what guarantees to sustain the yield of the Foundation because their means persist.
The network of the Foundation consists of:
The International Committees of the National Socialists concentration camps:
Town twinning with…
Paris, Nantes, Vassieux-en-Vercors
The “National Federation of Deported and Interned Resistance Fighters and Patriots” was founded by all people affected five months after the victory over Germany in October 1945. It bases upon the so-called “laws of 1901”. The victims of the different developments of the National Socialists terror and their French accomplices of the Vichy government are combined there: “Shadows fighters », men and women persecuted in the name of racial ideology, displaced persons, resistance fighters and the families of the lost and murdered persons.
The F.N.D.I.R.P. has joined and established plenty of projects since 1945, amongst others:
The “Union of Additional Insurance of the Ile de France” was founded in 1947. Over the years, the “Union of Additional Insurance of the Workers” became the “Union of Additional Insurance of Ile de France”, which comprises 50 assurers and 800.000 persons. It has a huge network of health and social insurances in service of the insurances and even more in service of the population. That is why it became one of the most important associate partner of the umbrella organization in collaboration with the insurance companies of the departments.
More than 50 years after its flotation, the functioning and the concept are based on the same value: “Act and allow to act to align health and solidarity” (Agir et faire agir pour que santé rime avec solidarité).
