How to Donate

You can make a gift to a fund or project at Give2Asia in several different ways. Here are details and resources to help making a gift as easy as possible.

US Donors:

If the charity you wish to support is part of Give2Asia’s Fiscal Sponsorship program, you can donate on their Give2Asia fund page using your credit card. Use the search field or filter by location and issue to find your preferred recipient.

US Donors:

When working with Give2Asia, U.S. donors enjoy a tax deduction while supporting communities in need across Asia.

  • Maximum tax deductibility: All contributions to Give2Asia are fully deductible, up to established limits, for U.S. Federal and State income tax purposes. Because Give2Asia is a public charity, the tax benefits are better than if you were to create your own private foundation. If you gave directly to an Asian charity, the gift would not be deductible in the U.S.
  • Save on capital gains tax: When you contribute appreciated securities to Give2Asia you avoid paying capital gains tax on the difference between the cost basis of the stock and the current value – yet you are able to take the full value as a tax deduction.
  • Current-year deduction and tax-free growth: For our Advised Grantmaking Funds, you receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of your donation in the year the contribution is made, regardless of when you recommend grant distributions. This makes a Give2Asia fund a great solution in a year when you could most benefit from a large deduction but are not ready to decide where you want to make grants. Give2Asia also accepts distributions from donor advised funds, family foundations, etc.
  • Estate planning tool: Give2Asia funds also can be a useful tool for your estate planning. For example, you may make a Donor Advised Fund the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy or qualified IRA assets, or make a testamentary gift to a fund in your Will. Please consult your tax or estate planning advisor to determine the best way to use a Give2Asia fund as part of your estate planning. Your fund can continue to be advised by family members or others you appoint.
