The Jordan Nwora Foundation (JNF) is established in the USA to raise funds through public and corporate donations for the development of sport in America and abroad. Regarding laws and legal regulations, donations to JNF may be tax deductible.
Donations to the JNF:
- must be voluntary
- must be unconditional
- must not be the result of a contractual obligation or pre-existing agreement including an invoice
- are non-refundable
- are not subject to GST
Donors may nominate a JNF registered organisation or project as the preferred beneficiary (Beneficiary) of their gift. While donors cannot insist the JNF direct their donation to a specific organisation or project, discretionary grants are made by the JNF to registered projects taking into account donor wishes.
Grants issued by the JNF to a Beneficiary are for the benefit of the organisation or club as a whole or, if the Beneficiary is a specific team within the club or organisation, must be allocated to benefit all team members equally.
Donors or their associates* must not receive any material benefit, advantage, right or privilege (apart from tax deductibility), nor act on an expectation that a material benefit, advantage, right or privilege will be returned to him or her or any of their associates in return for their donation (apart from tax deductibility).
For donations of $5 or more, an official JNF receipt will be forwarded to donors by email (or by mail where no email address is provided) for taxation purposes.
All claims for a tax deduction are subject to being accepted by the US Taxation Office, who can be contacted for professional advice if either an individual or business is uncertain of their taxation position.
Because the JNF is fully self-funded, we need to retain a small amount of all donations to support our work – including providing tax deductible fundraising capabilities for the benefit of the sporting community, and providing support to sporting and community groups in connection with their fundraising efforts. Our role also includes promoting sport as a philanthropic cause and educating people about the importance of sport in the community and the need for grassroots financial contributions.
The amounts retained by JNF are as follows:
- 5% for all online donations
- 6% for all manual donations
USE OF CREDIT CARDS
Credit card donations can be made with VISA, MasterCard or AMEX. These cards attract transaction fees as follows:
- 1% for VISA or MasterCard
- 2% for AMEX
In accordance with Clause 1 above, all donations are non-refundable. However, where unauthorised use of a credit or payment card is reported to your card issuer and the unauthorised nature of that use is accepted, then the donation will be refunded unless it has already been granted by JNF to the relevant Beneficiary.

*The definition of associate is very broad but includes relatives, companies which you and/or your associates control, partners in a partnership and spouses of those partners, as well as beneficiaries with an interest in a trust. This list is not exhaustive and is a guide only. Please refer to legal regulation texts for the complete definition of associate relating to donations.
Where a donation is made to the JNF and the donor provides insufficient information concerning their own identity and/or the identity of the preferred beneficiary, JNF will take reasonable steps to identify the donor and/or beneficiary. If the donor and/or beneficiary cannot be ascertained, JNF will hold the donation open for a period of 60 days to allow appropriate details to be provided.
At the end of this period, any such donations that remain unallocated will be allocated to a JNF program. Once a donation has been allocated to a JNF progam, it cannot be reallocated to another beneficiary, even if donor/beneficiary details are subsequently provided.
The current Terms & Conditions may be subject to changes without notice. JNF will strive to inform visitors, users, donors, partners and other third-party of any change of the terms and other statements.
