Mensa Foundation donors receive a number of benefits and communications. Donating to the Foundation is a terrific way to provide ongoing support of research and recognition of human intelligence. Foundation donors receive the following in return for their simple but meaningful donations:
Foundation News: This enewsletter brings the important work of the Foundation to your inbox four times each year.
Foundation Impact: Highlighting the recipients of Foundation awards, recognition and programs, this recurrent enewsletter lets you know how your donations make a lasting effect.
Additionally, donors at the $50, $75 and $100 levels will receive commemorative pins, acknowledging their donations. At the $200, $300 and $500 levels donors may opt to receive a "thank you" gift as noted below. These gifts are our way of saying “thank you” for your generous support of the Mensa Foundation and its programs.
Donors of $200-299 receive a Gildan Ultra Cotton™ T-Shirt. This T-shirt is preshrunk 100% cotton jersey (blended cotton/polyester in antique heather and safety colors) with a seamless double-needle 7/8" collar, taped neck and shoulders, double-needle sleeve and bottom hems, and quarter-turned to eliminate a center crease.
Donors of $300-499 receive a UltraClub® Classic Pique Cotton Polo in men's or women's styles. Both polos are 100% preshrunk cotton with a relaxed fit, taped neck and side vents, a half-moon patch and wood-tone buttons.
Donors of $500 or more receive a Foundation donor T-shirt and an UltraClub® Adult Lightweight Blend Soft Shell Jacket that is water-repellent and windproof and has a breathable soft-shell for ultimate comfort. The jackets are 88% polyester/12% spandex, athletic-cut, have 4-way stretch fabric for ease of movement, and front pockets.
All clothing gifts are fulfilled by the Mensa Store.
The Mensa Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We are required to inform you that your federal income tax deduction for your contribution is the amount of your contribution less the value of the gift if selected. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
