The Australian National University (ANU): Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship Fund

ANU offers full tax benefits to USA donors. See this page.

Additionally, most of big corporations in the US have "matching gift program." Under matching gift programs, employers match employees donations, up to a certain amount. For example, if an employee donates $5000 to an eligible charity, his/her employer will also donate $5000. If you or your family member works for such a company, you should check what the requirements are. Sending donation through CAFA would most likely qualify.

If making your donation through CAFA, you should indicate that you wish it to be made to The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia to support the Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship. It would be appreciated it if you could also separately notify Endowment@anu.edu.au that you have made your donation through CAFA. CAFA will send you a receipt direct for your US taxation purposes. ANU will also formally acknowledge when it is finally received at their end.

The process is as follows:

Step One:

Download and complete an online donation form from http://www.allaboutgiving.org/america/ to send to CAF America with your gift.

Alternatively, you can include a note with your gift, advising that you would like your donation to go to The Australian National University Minoru Hokari Memorial Scolarship.

Once you have sent your gift to CAFAmerica, ANU encourage you to notify the Endowment Office by phone, fax or email, so that ANU can ensure your gift is processed and acknowledged as promptly as possible.

Checks should be made out to CAF America, and posted to:

CAF America
King Street Station
1800 Diagonal Road, Suite 150
Alexandria, VA 22314-2840, USA

Step Two:

CAF America will issue you with an official donation receipt, which you can use to claim full tax deductions under 501 c (3) of the US tax code.

Step Three:

CAF America will process your gift and send it to ANU.

Step Four:

A NU will send you a thank-you letter acknowledging your generosity and confirming we received your gift.
