TSOP Welcomes DonationsTSOP greatly appreciates the donations which it receives. Donations are used for various projects and grants, including those for research and the Spackman Award graduate student grants. Our Industrial Sustainer program recognizes donations from corporations.
Tax-Exempt Non-Profit Status in USA
TSOP incorporated as a non-profit in the state of Virginia, USA, in 2008. Following application in June, 2009, the US Internal Revenue Service granted recognition of 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status on February 9, 2010. (March 2010 Newsletter, page 6).
This status means that amounts donated by US taxpayers may be deductible from the amount of income on which they must pay federal income tax. TSOP expects that, through the years, this should significantly encourage donations.
