Is my donation tax deductible in Hong Kong?

Yes. As a constituent College of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Chung Chi College is legitimately recognized for its charitable status, and therefore can issue tax exemption receipts to donors who donate to the College with not less than one hundred Hong Kong dollars.

 

Is my donation tax deductible overseas?

Donations to the College are tax deductible in both the U.S. and Canada.

For friends from the U.S.
Tax-deductible donations to the College should be made through The CUHK Foundation, Inc. by cheque or through United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia by cheque or credit card online. (Click here for more information.)

The Chinese University of Hong Kong Foundation, Inc. is established and qualified under IRC Section 501 (c)(3) of Internal Revenue Service as a tax exempt organization in the U.S. (Federal Tax I.D. Number: 98-0477422). All donations from the U.S. can be made to the Foundation and are tax deductible in the U.S. with official donation receipts issued by the Foundation. At present, the Foundation has also successfully registered in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Illinois and California to solicit donations from citizens of these states to support The CUHK.

The United Board is a tax-exempt, charitable organization in the United States, and all contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by U.S. law. Tax exemption receipt will be issued by the United Board for donations made through The United Board.

For friends from Canada
Donations to the College should be made through The CUHK. (Click here for details.) The CUHK has been recognized as a prescribed foreign university in Canada under Section 3503 of the Canadian Income Tax Regulations and was added according to Schedule VIII of the Regulations by Order-in-Council P.C. 2010-551. With an official receipt issued by The CUHK, Canadian donations can be claimed against the taxable income according to subparagraph 110.1(1)(a)(vi) and paragraph 118.1(1)(f) of the Canadian Income Tax Act.

For other countries, whether a donation made by an overseas donor will be tax deductible will require checking of the laws and regulations of the country to which that donor is located. Donors are encouraged to seek their own legal/tax advice.

 

Will I receive any recognition after I make a donation?

As a token of our most sincere gratitude, our generous donors (or organizations) will be acknowledged, with their name (preferably in Chinese when it appears to organizations), major and year of graduation, on various publications of the College.

Can I remain anonymous in donor listings (if any) when I make a donation?
