Frequently Asked Questions

What is Daraja’s Federal Tax ID number?

Our EIN, or Tax ID #, is: 20-8283551

Is my donation tax-deductable?

Your donation is processed through Daraja Education Fund. DEF is a 501(c)3 charitable organization registered in the United States. If you live in the U.S., your donation is 100% tax deductible.

How do I get a copy of my receipt?

Electronic donations:

Daraja Education Fund provides an electronic receipt at the time of the donation, and mails an acknowledgement letter to the address provided or most recent address on file. Both the receipt you see onscreen at the completion of the donation process and the e-mail you receive shortly thereafter meet all IRS requirements as a record of donation.


Daraja Education Fund disperses a paper acknowledgement for IRS purposes upon receipt of your check. The letter is mailed to the address provided either on the check or included correspondence. If neither is provided, a letter is mailed to the last known address DEF has on file for you.

May I designate money for a specific program?

We appreciate your interest in supporting our programs. While it is possible to have your gift directed toward a specific program, we ask that you contribute unrestricted funding. By not restricting your contribution for a specific project, you will enable us to allocate our resources more efficiently and where needs are greatest.

Should you still wish to restrict your donation, please indicate the specific program when making your contribution either in included correspondence or in the “comments” portion of the donation webpage.
