If you are based in the US and would like to support us, you can do so in a tax-efficient way by contributing to the ‘Friends of the Africa Research Excellence Fund’ at the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS).

Because KBFUS is a public charity, in accordance with Sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) of the IRC , you can claim the maximum tax benefits allowed by US tax law for your donation.

To support us, visit the Friends of the Africa Research Excellence Fund page.

To ensure that 100 per cent of your donation goes to AREF, you can opt to cover the three per cent transaction fee. 

Thank you!
