Donation to 80-20 Educational Foundation

This page address common questions about donating to any of 80-20EF's campaigns: If you are writing a check (preferred method for $1000+ to save on fees):
  • make it payable to "80-20 EF"
  • include your email in memo line (without it, you implicitly choose not to receive tax-deductible receipt)
  • mail it to: Stephen Lin, 969 Acalanes Rd, Lafayette, CA, 94549

  • Note: for checks less than $250, the donor will have to keep the returned check to use as the equivalent of a tax receipt.

Please be aware of the following ways to donate to a tax exempt organization like 80-20EF:

  • Matching Gift: Big companies like Boeing and Adobe have "Employee Matching Gift" program. Please inquire if your company has such a program. See bottom of page for example companies.

  • Stocks: A huge increase in the value of stocks will cause you a lot of tax when you cash them in. If you give them to 80-20 EF, you get the full value of the stocks intax deduction.

  • Real-Estate: Huge tax value to you. For details consult us. Email S. B. Woo.

  • Bequeath: Again huge tax value to you. For details consult us. Email S. B. Woo.

Using PayPal vs Checks

We've created a PayPal tutorial page to help donors navigate through the PayPal payment process.

We discourage the use of checks due to processing burden involved. So consider donation by check only for amounts larger than $250.

If you must use check, please note that for checks less than $250, the donor will have to keep the returned check to use as the equivalent of a tax receipt.
