All donations to the Academy are welcomed.   There is a “Donate” button on the right side of every page of this website.  This will take you to our PayPal account for donations, which can be given either through PayPal or credit card.

If you wish to donate by check, please include the following information to claim a tax deduction for a donation to the Academy:

1) Name:  Washington Academy of Sciences
2) Address: 1200 New York Avenue NW, Rm 455
Washington, DC, 20005
3) Taxpayer Identification Number: 53-0241911

The treasurer of the Academy sends receipts to individuals who made donations.  These receipts contain the statement, “The Washington Academy of Sciences is listed by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as an ‘Organization Eligible to Receive Tax-deductible Contributions.’”  These receipts are for the convenience of members, since they summarize all the donations the member made during the year.  The treasurer also sends receipts to donors upon request, as it may be needed if a donation comes from a taxpayer with a fiscal year that is different from the calendar year.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Academy!
