Contributions Are Tax Deductible

Marin Community College District (College of Marin) is a publicly supported non-profit institution and part of the State of California Community College System. Your charitable contribution makes a difference to College of Marin, our students, and the community. The federal tax I.D. number for the District is 68-0194359.

Section 70900 of the California Education Code establishes the California Community College System as part of the public post secondary education system for the State of California. Primary financial support is provided by local property taxes and state apportionment.

Any contribution made directly to the College would be tax deductible for individual donors under IRC section 170(b)(1)(A)(v), donations to a governmental unit. As a special service to government entities that have no determination letter, the IRS issues a “government affirmation letter.” This letter describes the government entity exemption from Federal Income tax and cites applicable Internal Revenue Code sections pertaining to deductible contributions and income exclusion.
