In the United States, the Equine Research Foundation is a public charity described by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is not a private foundation, as it is an organization described in section 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(VI) of the Internal Revenue Code. Residents of countries other than the U.S. should check with the appropriate revenue agency.
In general, contributions of cash, securities and property donated by U.S. citizens to support scientific research projects qualify for a charity tax deduction. Furthermore, under certain circumstances volunteers may deduct reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for transportation to and from research sites. Since tax circumstances for individuals vary, the Equine Research Foundation cannot be responsible for tax advice to its participants and sponsors. We suggest that you consult your own tax advisor.
Although we are not qualified to give tax advice, feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our programs.
