Yes. Although individual donors are not subject to the same tax requirements as other grantmaking entities, we welcome individuals who would like the extra level of diligence that ED provides. Individual donors should be aware that when NGOsource certifies a foreign NGO as equivalent, it doesn’t mean that the NGO becomes registered as a U.S. public charity. In general, U.S.-based individual donors do not receive the tax benefits of giving to a 501(c)(3) public charity when making direct gifts to ED-certified foreign NGOs. Donors should consult their tax advisors.
