Thank you for your interest in Rule of Law Foundation. As an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) approved 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, your donations help to further our ultimate goal – to bring the rule of law to China!
As part of our organization’s recordkeeping and administration, the Rule of Law Foundation is required to maintain certain specific information concerning the identity of its donors. In addition to being generally required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), this information allows the organization to provide its donors with written confirmation of their contributions to the Rule of Law Foundation during each calendar year, which is necessary in support of any US income tax deduction that may be associated with a particular donor. In addition, and to the extent that a donor who is located in a jurisdiction other than the United States is eligible for a tax deduction, the requested information will allow the Rule of Law Foundation to substantiate that donation.
While the Rule of Law Foundation sends information request letters to those donors for whom it has contact information, some contributions are received by the organization without specific donor contact information (particularly donations made by wire transfers). As such, the Rule of Law Foundation requests that each donor who contributed to it during the prior calendar year kindly provide the following information, if it was not previously submitted to the organization: 1. The Donor’s full name; 2. The Donor’s full mailing address; 3. Number of donations made during the calendar year; and 4. Amount of each donation made.
Donors should please be assured that the Rule of Law Foundation will keep your information completely confidential within our secure internal database.
Please note that, as provided elsewhere on our website, because the income tax laws of each jurisdiction are complex, and as the income tax implications of any donation may depend upon the donor’s individual circumstances and other related facts, the Rule of Law Foundation cannot provide any specific income tax guidance to its donors. As such, each donor, regardless of geographic location, is encouraged to contact an experienced accountant or tax advisor as to the deductibility of any donation made to the Rule of Law Foundation.
