Donation FAQ

Q: Is my donation tax deductible?

A: Ashoka is a non-profit organization that is tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. You will receive a tax receipt by email upon submission of your donation.

Q: How will my donation be used?

A: Your donation is an unrestricted gift to Ashoka in the United States and supports all of our programming.

Q: I am interested in contributing to Ashoka with both my time and money. Can I do this?

A: Absolutely! The Ashoka Support Network is a community of successful business people who share our belief that entrepreneurs are the primary engine for economic and social development. They engage with Ashoka, committing time and resources to support the work of our Fellows and community of changemakers. Contact us if you are interested in joining. ASN membership entails a three-year financial commitment of a minimum of $10,000 yearly.

Q: Can I donate stock to Ashoka?

A: Yes! If you are considering a gift of stock to Ashoka, your broker will require this information to complete the transfer:

Our Broker:
Schwab Brokerage

Bank Contact:
Sean Jenkins
VP-Financial Consultant
Tel. (202) 530 1844

Email: sean.jenkins@schwab.com

Check status of transfer with Schwab: (602) 355-9003
DTC #: 0164, CODE 40
Ashoka Account Number: 5183-4508

Please ensure that you or your broker sends notification to Ashoka—by phone, fax, email, or letter—that you have transferred stocks (including the type of stock/fund and number of shares). The transfer slip we receive does not always provide donor identification information, making it difficult to issue the proper receipt. Proper notification will ensure prompt processing of your donation.

 

Q: How can I stay up to speed with all the latest happenings at Ashoka?

A: We encourage you to check out our blogs on Forbes and Medium, where you’ll find our take on the latest trends in social innovation, and stories about game-changing ideas and innovators tackling key challenges across the United States and around the world.
