Gift Aid on United Kingdom donations
The Trust is able to benefit from the present UK tax legislation by reclaiming tax on donations from UK tax-payers under the Gift Aid scheme, which increases the value of the gift by nearly a third (there are further tax advantages for donors who pay at higher rates).
United States of America donations
For residents of the USA, donations can be made to one of two 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organizations, with the request that the donation be used to support work at Tell el-Amarna in Egypt.
The first is the Amarna Research Foundation, which also invites membership. Members recieve a separate newsletter. The Foundation supports research into Amarna and the Amarna Period more generally. It helps to fund the Amarna Project.
The second is the Cambridge in America Foundation, which makes grants directly to the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research in Cambridge and hence to the Amarna Project.
