America is a country with a rich history of philanthropy. While J.D. Rockefeller, Bill Gates and MacKenzie Scott may be some of the most recognizable donor names, over half of Americans give to charity each year.
US donors may enjoy tax benefits for their charitable giving and, while this is not their motivation for donating, these tax benefits are a factor in philanthropic decisions – especially for major and planned gifts. The ability to offer American donors a tax benefit increases your potential to raise significant money in the US with the right approach.
However, operating a charitable entity in the US requires legal and regulatory expertise, as well as administrative time and resources—time and resources you need for engaging your donors.
The Chapel & York US Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization and can help you offer tax benefits to donors in America. A fund with our US Foundation provides you with a presence in the country and allows you to effectively fundraise without having to set up a legal entity.
