We're happy to report that the D Language Foundation is now a public charity operating under US Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). The decision is retroactive to September 23, 2015.

This has wide-ranging implications, the most important being that individuals and organizations may make tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts to the Foundation. We will mull over defining donation and sponsorship packages in the near future. If interesting in donating spontaneously, feel free to reach out to us via email at foundation@dlang.org.

Many thanks are due to the folks in this community who asked for and supported this initiative.



Thanks,

Andrei

Andrei,

This is splendid news for the purveying of the D Programming language.  The question is though: this covers the USA what about the Rest of the World?

For the language itself it is almost irrelevant where the owning foundation is located as long as it is a charitable venture in its jusridiction of incorporation. However for financial issues, the jurisdiction is critical. Getting USA-wide charitable status is great, well-done on that, particularly in the context of the atitude of IRS to charitable foundations a couple of years ago. However the EU and other parts of the world will not be covered by this, and I am not sure there is any form of reciprocal arrangement.

For Germany this would probably require a separate application to the tax office to become a "gemeinnützige Organisation" (charitable organization).

It seems [0] within the EU, it is enough for the donor to proof charity by including the charter in the tax declaration, but not for the US.
