Donate to the JKI

Although the Jikishin-Kai International was founded in September 2022 as a non-profit educational and athletic organisation under 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code, the Internal Revenue Service has not yet issued a formal determination letter confirming our tax-exempt status. Therefore, any donations made to the JKI at this time may not be considered tax deductible.

Therefore, although we accept and are grateful for any donations from individuals and organisations of cash, training equipment, property, estate bequests, or other transfers and gifts under 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the Internal Revenue Code, we strongly recommend that you first consult with your tax advisor to determine if your gift will be tax deductible.

The Jikishin-Kai is funded primarily by the dues and fees paid by our members for the services we provide, and from the small margin (targeted at 10% above direct costs) of the products we sell to members.  Because we deliberately keep our costs and margins as low as possible for the benefit of our members, any major capital outlays or expenses may require donations, and we fully realise that every donation, large or small, is a statement of your trust in, and appreciation for, the work that we do and the standards we maintain, so we are deeply appreciative for every dollar contributed.

We therefore thank you for visiting this page and considering a donation to the Jikishin-Kai!

Currently, the only form of monetary donation we can accept is by check or money order mailed to us, or by donating or bequeathing items of property (training equipment, vehicles, land, buildings, etc.).  We will soon be adding the ability to accept payments and donations by PayPal fund transfer (including debit or credit card payments processed through PayPal) and similar online methods.  Information and links for each of these methods is provided below:

In accordance with IRS regulations, we issue a written receipt for any donation of $250 or more.  It is our understanding that for donations of less than $250, your cancelled check, credit card statement, or PayPal transfer record is satisfactory proof of your donation.

However, should you or your tax preparer require a receipt for your records, simply email us a request and one will be promptly issued.
