The С槼ֱ, Federal Taxpayer I.D. #95-2501387, is a not-for-profit entity as defined under 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Contributions are deductible to the extent allowed by law. If your donation was in support of a fundraising event, ticket costs may be tax-deductible as allowed by law per attendee. If you need a tax receipt or misplaced the one you received from us, please contact the Philanthropy Office at philanthropy@colburnschool.edu or call 213-621-4535 and we are happy to assist you.

Gifts through the workplace are always made at the discretion of the individual and their company. Please contact your company to inquire about donations that can be directed towards a specific charitable organization of your choice. We thank you for thinking of the С槼ֱ and look forward to hearing from you about a donation through your company.

Please inquire with your company about initiating a matching gift to the С槼ֱ. The Philanthropy Office is happy to assist you in filling out any verification forms, but often, the initiation of a matching gift begins with the employee submitting a matching gift request with their company.
