Gifts to the University of St Andrews American Foundation are tax-deductible for US donors. The University of St Andrews American Foundation, Inc. is a publicly supported section 501(c)(3) organization described in sections 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code.

University of St Andrews American Foundation Challenge Fund

The Challenge Fund was launched this year to match gifts from alumni to the University of St Andrews American Foundation Inc. This fund matches in full new gifts this financial year from Alumni who have not given in the previous financial year. For Alumni who are existing donors, if an annual gift is increased or an additional gift is made, the value of the increase of this year’s donation will be matched.

This is an excellent opportunity to increase the value of your support to the University at no extra cost to you and no extra work! Donors can make their gifts as normal without worrying about any extra administration related to the matching element - this will be taken care of by the University.

We process gifts from US taxpayers through Network for Good, a registered US non-profit organisation that provides fundraising services to charities. Network for Good will issue your IRS tax receipt for gifts made to the University of St Andrews American Foundation, and you will receive a separate letter from the Foundation.

Network for Good charges a 5% fee for their services, comparable to other credit card processor rates, which you may also deduct from your taxes.  If you prefer not to make your gift through Network for Good, please contact us at donate@st-andrews.ac.uk or scroll down to find out about other convenient gift vehicles.
