Yes. Individual donors can designate a donation toward a specific project if it is included in the NPH general budget or if the National Board has passed a resolution to support a specific project.

Because we are supporting a foreign organization (NPH), the IRS has very specific regulations. These regulations require that NPH USA clearly state what we are supporting at NPH. In order to support the greatest needs of NPH, the NPH USA National Board has passed a resolution to support the NPH budget. The NPH budget is determined by the NPH National Directors and NPH International. The National Board can also pass additional resolutions to support specific projects, if deemed appropriate. If a donor designates outside of what has been approved by the National board, the donation is not tax deductible according to the IRS regulations AND could also put our organization in jeopardy of maintaining our charitable status.

NPH USA does much more than just give money to NPH. We fund all costs in the U.S. for the international volunteer program and in-kind donation program. We also fund the U.S. education of specific pequeños and the entire communication process between pequeños and their U.S. sponsors. In strictly numerical terms, in 2017, NPH USA provided $18.8 million of support to NPH International (NPHI), comprised of $17.1 million of cash and $1.7 million in materials (primarily medical in nature).
