    • 109 N. Graham Street, Suite 203 Chapel Hill, NC 27516 919.338.2599 ERADICATING POVERTY | ENGAGING STUDENTS | EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES Ra i s i n g mo n ey f o r St ude n t T r a v e l Nourish allows students participating in summer service projects or training to use Nourish’s 501 c 3 status to raise tax-deductible donations to cover the cost of their travel. If you’re interested in using Nourish’s tax-deductible status to cover the cost of your travel here are some important rules to be aware of: 1 . T he s e a r e d o n a t i o n s . That means they aren’t refundable, don’t bear interest and can only be applied to Nourish-related expenses. Nourish related expenses are limited to the cost of traveling to the Nourish Project or Training; the cost of travel insurance and any food costs directly related to the Nourish project or training. Travel Insurance will be billed at the Nourish rate ($115 in 2010). Travel costs will either be purchased by Nourish on behalf of the student or reimbursed upon presentation of a receipt. Food and in-country travel costs will be provided as a stipend to students prior to leaving and will be billed at the rate listed on the project leader’s itinerary of expected expenses. Students have until 9/30 to present receipts. Nourish will only reimburse up to the amount that students have raised. Any excess money left over at the end of the summer (9/30) will be applied to Nourish’s general operating budget. 2 . T o be t ax dedu c t i b l e , do n a t i o n s mu s t be s u bm i t t e d t o t h e Na t i o n a l Of f i c e . They should be mailed, along with the donor’s information (Name, address and email address) to 109 N. Graham Street, Suite 203, Chapel Hill NC 27516. Nourish will present donors with a receipt for their donation. 3 . I t i s y o u r re sp o n s i b i l i t y t o make s u r e t h a t wek n o w wh i c h d o n a t i o n s be l o n g t o you . This means that your name, project and University should be on the donation (or attached to the group of donations) when we receive them. Any donations received without being marked specifically to your travel expenses will be put to the general mission of the organization. Please be careful, as there are no exceptions to this rule. To be tax-deductible, checks must be made out to Nourish and not to you. 4. Nou r i s h r e s e r v e s t h e r i g h t t o u s e up t o 5% o f do n a t i o n s t o c o v e r expe n s e s . Paper for receipts, stamps, and accounting hours all cost money. Because of this, the National Office reserves the right to use up to 5% of travel funds to cover these internal costs. This will only occur if we receive a high volume of student travel donations and students will be informed if it needs to take place. 5 . Ot h e r i mp o r t a n t in f o rmat i o n :

It isn’t “up-to-the-moment” accurate, but it will be accurate as of the last group of donations we processed (we process donations about once a week).
