The American Friends of the Arts in Ireland is a tax-exempt organization incorporated under the laws of the United States of America and has been determined by the IRS to be a public charity under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For those subject to American taxation on any of their income or assets, donations to the American Friends of the Arts in Ireland may be taken as a deduction against that income or, in the case of an estate, the taxable value of the estate. For advice in relation to tax planning, we recommend you consult a professional tax adviser to ensure you can maximize your generosity to American Friends of the Arts in Ireland.

By donating to the AFAI you are directly supporting the collection, exhibition, research and outreach of two of the finest cultural organizations in Ireland with truly global visions, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Chester Beatty. In compliance with IRS regulations, the Board of AFAI maintains complete discretion over allocation of the gifts it receives.  AFAI stands ready to assist in facilitating such giving so as to take advantage of the full benefit of U.S federal and state tax deductibility for properly structured contributions.
