US Donating FAQs

Are my donations to INTO Giving tax-deductible?

Yes. INTO Giving is a US 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

For any one-off donation you make to INTO Giving, you will receive an automatic thank you that you may use when doing your taxes as evidence of your donation.

For everyone who makes regular monthly donations, INTO Giving will send you a thank you/receipt at the end of the tax year, highlighting your total donations.

How much of my donations to INTO Giving go to philanthropic causes?

Every penny. Because INTO University Partnerships pays the operational costs of INTO Giving, anything you donate to INTO Giving goes toward non-profit educational causes nominated by your INTO colleagues.

Who does my donation help?

INTO Giving – that includes you – sticks up for girls in danger being forced or coerced out of school because they’re girls, for refugee schoolchildren who’ve fled war and for boys and girls alike who are at risk of losing their education because their families are poor.

Visit INTO Giving’s project webpage to see the full rundown of everywhere we – that ‘we’ of course includes you – are making a difference today.

What if I only give $5 or $10 a month, what difference does that make?

The difference is huge. And the difference is collective (it’s not just you: we’re in this together). Collectively, monthly donations of $5 or $10 add up to hundreds. Over the course of a year, they total thousands. And that sort of money goes a country mile.

If I set up a monthly donation, am I free to cancel it at any time?

Yes, indeed. It’s easy: just contact your bank and tell them you want to pull the plug. They’ll take care of the rest.

Who do INTO Giving bank with?

Your donations go directly to INTO Giving’s HSBC USA bank account. From there, they’re distributed to INTO Giving’s family of educational non-profits worldwide, or to iGive projects of your own choosing.

Once I set up a monthly donation, or make a one-off donation, is there anything more I should do?

Yes: feel good about yourself. You’ve done something good and deserve to feel good for what you’ve done.  Aside from that, why not drop INTO Giving a line and let us know all about it.
