FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How will my donation be used?
At Black In Neuro, we believe that recognizing and compensating people for their work is important. Often, Black scholars are expected to donate their time, effort, and energy to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice efforts. That's why the majority of our budget goes towards compensating our speakers, facilitators, panelists, captioners, interpreters, and artists fairly for their expertise. Funds will also go towards recurring and future expenses, like our website, our member and financial management software, and upcoming initiatives that we have in the works.
Last year, I donated to Black In Neuro a different way. What changed?
During Black In Neuro Week 2020, we were a newly formed, grassroots organization, and therefore accepted donations through Two Photon Art and the University of California Irvine Center for Neurobiology, Learning and Memory (UCI CNLM). Since then, Black In Neuro has registered as a corporation and we are now processing our own donations.
Is my donation tax deductible?
We are in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) non-profit status, so donations are not currently tax deductible. Hang on to your donation receipt, and we will let you know if and when we obtain our status!
What payment methods do you accept?
We are currently accepting donations by credit card.
I cannot make an online credit card donation. How else can I donate?
