tVPN is seeking expressions of interest from potential sponsors*. tVPN is not-for-profit and is in the process of registering as a charity in the UK and a 501(c)3 in the US.
On gaining charitable status – UK payers will be able to ‘gift aid’ donations to tVPN allowing us to claim 28% extra on each donation. What’s more higher rate tax payers will be able to reclaim tax relief at 20% of their gross donation.
On confirmation under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code donations will be deductible against US tax, also bequests and gifts will be deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purposes.
Sponsorship at any level is welcome, in addition recognition will be gratefully acknowledged at the following donation levels:
|Sponsor||($/£) 50||($/£) 500|
|Supporter||($/£) 100||($/£) 5,000|
|Patron||($/£) 500+||($/£) 15,000+|
* At this point tVPN has not completed registration nor can we guarantee that we will meet the criteria under UK or US law, hence tVPN cannot receive donations at this time and this does not constitute solicitation for funds nor is it a promise of relief from taxes under any jurisdiction. However expressions of interests / intent of donations at any level are most welcome.
