The American Foundation for Catholics

A new US non profit organisation that has been set up to enable American tax payers to make tax deductible donations that can be used to support Catholic parishes and other Catholic causes in the United Kingdom.

Introduction

The American Foundation for Catholics is an independent American non profit organisation and it has been established to accept donations of $250 or more from American taxpayers and to make grants to Catholic parishes (and other Catholic causes) in the UK. It is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization which means that donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

How does it work?

If you pay American taxes and wish to make a donation to the American Foundation for Catholics, you should do so using the AFC’s donation form. This can be downloaded here.

The Board of the AFC has determined to use the donations that it receives to support Catholic parishes and other Catholic causes. Any donations submitted using the form from our website will be used towards the restoration of Corpus Christi Catholic Church, here in Covent Garden.

The details are already printed on the donation form.

Completed forms should be returned (with the donation) to either of the following addresses:

The American Foundation for Catholics, Inc,
Vaughan House
46 Francis Street
London
SW1P 1QN
United Kingdom

The American Foundation for Catholics, Inc,
c/o Chapel & York Limited

The American Foundation for Catholics can accept donations of stock but its policy is to sell the stock as soon as possible. The value of the stock may therefore realise more or less than its value when it was given. Please contact Charles Donington (charlesd@rcdow.org.uk) for brokerage account details.

The American Foundation for Catholics will send donors the receipt required for the tax return.
