An American Friends Fund of the Jacob A. Riis Museum has been established to enable donations from the USA. The fund is established with the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS), an intermediary charity that is setup to help European charities and non-profits, like us, to accept donations from the USA. It provides advice, services and takes care of due diligence processes so that donors know their donations are reaching the intended charity or project. Over the years, KBFUS has enabled USA-based donors to successfully support European and African charities and charitable projects.
Because KBFUS is a public charity, within the meaning of Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) of the IRC, donors may claim the maximum tax benefits allowed by U.S. tax law for their contributions.
If you wish to support us, here is how to proceed:
- Gifts by check: Write your check to KBFUS, write ‘Jacob A. Riis Museum’ in the memo section of the check, and send it to KBFUS, 10 Rockefeller Plaza, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10020.
- Gifts by credit card: Go to www.kbfus.org, click on the ‘Donate Now’ button and select ‘Jacob A. Riis Museum’ under ‘Giving Option 1: Nonprofit Partners Overseas’.
Or, go straight to our fund’s site and click ‘Donate’
