American Friends of the Czech Republic is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) and described as a public charity under section 509(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Contributions are tax deductible under Section 170(c) of the Code.   Its Federal Tax ID # is:  52-1921393.

AFoCR’s financial support comes almost exclusively through private contributions from individuals, companies, organizations, foundations, and cities.  Since its founding AFoCR has received thousands of donations, totaling nearly $5,000,000.

AFoCR receives no funding from the U.S. Government.  It has, however, accepted grants from the Czech Ministry of Foreign Ministry Affairs (MFA) for the purpose of maintaining the Masaryk Memorial in Washington and publishing the AFoCR Newsletter.  The Czech MFA, however, has no input to, and exercises no oversight over, the AFoCR Newsletter.
