On 13 September 2018 the Internal Revenue Service issued a formal determination letter confirming our tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) educational and athletic non-profit organisation and §509(a)(2) public charity.  This determination was retroactive to 20 March 2018, meaning that all donations received after that date are tax deductible under 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.

In addition to cash donations, individuals and organisations may also receive a tax deduction for bequests, devices, transfers, or gifts under 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The Seishin-Kan relies exclusively on the generosity of its members and donors in order to provide instruction at its local dōjō, maintaining this webiste and the world famous Web-Dōjō, and the Kokusai Budō Senmon Gakkō.  We fully realise that every donation, large or small, is a statement of your trust in, and appreciation for, the work that we do and the standards we maintain, so we are deeply appreciative for every dollar contributed.

We therefore thank you for visiting this page and considering a donation to the Seishin-Kan!

Currently, there are three ways you can donate to supporting the work of the Seishin-Kan:  by PayPal fund transfer (including debit or credit card payments processed through PayPal), by check or money order mailed to us, or by donating or bequeathing items of property (training equipment, vehicles, land, buildings, etc.). Information and links for each of these methods is provided below:
