A NOTE FOR DONORS TO THE TIKKUN
INTERNATIONAL® FUND AND
TIKKUN CONNECTED MINISTRIES
Tikkun International is a U.S. 501(c)(3) organization that
has partnered with several leaders and ministries abroad to
administer donations according to our expressed purposes.
When one gives to a Tikkun-connected ministry, one writes
checks to Tikkun International and suggests the ministry to
which they direct their funds. We are the agency that serves
these ministries for U. S. fund management, accounting and
audits etc. We seek to honor donor wishes. However, (as is
the case with all non-profits) the IRS does require that
ultimate control over the disbursement of such funds is
according to the decision of the Tikkun board on which are
some of the men who lead the connected ministries.
Secondly, donors may contribute to the Tikkun International
Fund and not suggest any specific ministry. If a donor
chooses to do this, the funds will be used according to the
decision of the Tikkun International Board. Presently these
funds are used to support the needs of connected ministries,
related ministries, and partner ministries (see our web
site). The Tikkun board determines how best to allocate the
funds based on immediate needs.
PAYMENTS BY MAIL
Make checks payable to "Tikkun International".
Mail to: PO Box 2997, Gaithersburg, MD 20886-2997.
For donations to individual emissaries, attach a note indicating
"for the ministry of -----------", but do not write on the check.
By IRS rules (which apply to all non-profits), checks that are
designated for individuals on the memo line can not be accepted
as a tax deductible gift. We seek to honor donor's requests
here, and our emissaries depend upon us doing so.
Currently, as a USA 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable
organisation, we are only able to offer donation receipts
that are acceptable to the United States tax authorities.
In particular, donations are not considered tax-deductible
by the Canadian tax authorities, neither are they eligible
for the UK GiftAid scheme.
