Where does Aytzim operate?
Aytzim is based in New York with an office in New Jersey and projects in California, Maryland and Israel.

Is my donation to Aytzim tax deductible?
Yes, if you pay taxes in the United States. Aytzim (Green Zionist Alliance, Inc.) is classified by the IRS as a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). For other countries we are unable to provide tax receipts, but we would welcome partners to help collect tax-deductible donations in other countries. 

How much of my donation goes to programming and how much goes to overhead?
Every organization calculates overhead differently. Depending upon how overhead is calculated, we spend between 1 and 10 percent of donations on overhead and between 90 and 99 percent of donations on programming. 

Where can I see Aytzim's IRS Form 990?
Aytzim (Green Zionist Alliance, Inc.) is exempt from filing the Form 990 because Aytzim's annual revenues fall below the IRS threshold for that form. Instead, Aytzim files Form 990N, an archive of which can be found on the IRS website. Aytzim also is included among the listings of numerous organizations that evaluate nonprofits, including GuideStar and GreatNonprofits.

What about the greenhouse gasses released into the atmosphere by airplanes when Aytzim members travel?
When people travel on behalf of the Aytzim, their transportation is carbon offset through carbon-mitigating projects. 

Can I get a job with Aytzim?
Aytzim is a volunteer-run organization. We do not advocate, support or practice unlawful discrimination based on age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, disability, race, size, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background.
