Is my donation tax-deductible? How does your fiscal model work?

A:

At this point, Interfaith Refugee Project is a volunteer initiative and does not have 501c3 status. However, your donation is fully tax deductible because HIAS acts as our fiscal sponsor for U.S. based donations. Any donation you make will go directly to HIAS, and they will issue you a tax receipt for the full amount. HIAS will then divide the money equally between the four organizations. (World Vision acts as our fiscal sponsor in Canada.) You will receive a thank you note from each of the other three organizations, but they will not add you to their mailing lists. Interfaith Refugee Project will not collect any of your money—100 percent of it will go to the organizations we support.
