FAQ

  • Can I donate with a credit card issued outside the U.S.?
    Yes. We accept credit cards (Visa/MasterCard) as long as the bank issuing the card allows transactions in U.S. Dollars. Tax deduction will, however, only be applicable for the US.
  • Can I donate in currencies other than U.S. Dollars using my credit card?
    Yes, it is possible to do so if your credit card allows transactions in USD. However, you will need to convert the amount you are donating to USD and enter it in the amount field. Your credit card company will bill you in your local currency.
  • Is the contribution tax-deductible?
    If you donate by international credit card, it is 501(c)3 tax deductible only in the US. You will receive an e-receipt of your donation immediately after the transaction. A printout of the e-receipt is sufficient for tax purposes.
