Getting a tax receipt. By default, we will send you a tax reciept at the email or postal address that you used to send your donation. If you would like us to use a different address, please include instructions with your gift.

Applying restrictions. If you would like to restrict your donation specifically for our collaborations with the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI), include “donation for FHI collaborations” as a message with your donation, either in the memo field of the check, or the special instructions field of the PayPal interface. However, please do not include other restrictions on your donation at this time; otherwise, we may choose to return your donation in order to avoid complicating our accounting.

If you have any other questions about donating to BERI or would like to explore other means of giving, please email us at contact@existence.org.

Thanks for considering us!
