Donate to the Center for Immigration Studies

The Center is grateful for contributions, big and small, from individuals and foundations that support our work to educate and inform policymakers, the media, and the public on the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States.

We are a 501(c)(3) organization, meaning that gifts made to CIS are tax-deductible. Our federal tax identification number is 52-1449368. We also accept donations via Paypal and check.



We respect the privacy of our donors and prospective donors. All donor-related information is handled on a confidential basis -- no information on donors is posted to our website, no names or addresses are ever sold, lent, or rented, no inquiry from the press or anyone else regarding the identity of donors is ever acknowledged. We support the Donor Bill of Rights developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

We take our fiduciary responsibilities seriously, striving to be good stewards of the donations entrusted to us. Our latest financial audit is available here and our most recent federal tax return (form 990) is available here.

We participate in the Combined Federal Campaign. Our CFC number is 10298.

The Center accepts donations of stock. In addition, more and more individuals are choosing planned gifts as a way to help sustain charitable programs and also reduce their tax burden. To donate stock or to find out more about planned giving, contact John Wahala at 703-863-9663 or [email protected].
