Tyndale House Foundation only sends funds to organizations that have United States Federal Tax Exempt Status. On the application, you will be asked to provide your FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number) which is available on the IRS letter granting you Tax Exempt Status. Although overseas organizations may have tax exempt status in their own country this does not satisfy the requirements U.S. tax law places on Tyndale House Foundation.
We fund projects located in the United States and Overseas. It is very important that you choose the correct application form for your circumstances. Because so much of our funding goes overseas, it is critical for us to understand the relationship of the Overseas Project and the U.S. Tax Exempt Organization and to have full information for the overseas contacts.
Which application do I use if my project takes place overseas but I don’t have an office or leadership overseas? Instead, the project is implemented from the United States.
Please use the U.S. Application.
What if there is a security risk concerning overseas leadership working closely with the project?
Please use the U.S. Application and contact us to discuss it.
