Imperial College Foundation Inc. (ICF) is a US tax exempt organization (EIN 58-1813092) and gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible in the United States under IRS code 501(c)(3).
In compliance with IRS regulations, the Board of Directors of ICF maintains complete discretion over allocation of the gifts it receives. Gifts to the Foundation qualify for an income tax deduction to the full extent allowed by law.
Your donation is deductible the same year in which it is made. Please be sure contributions sent to us by mail are postmarked on or before December 31 of the year in which you plan to claim a deduction.
We send a letter of acknowledgement to all donors, either electronically or by mail, which can be used as a tax receipt.
Thanks to the support of our generous donors, the Foundation supports a wide range of activities at Imperial College London. Donations to the Imperial College Foundation benefit Imperial College London by supporting students, facilities, academic research, and other College initiatives.
