Donations to ACOR

acorb2.jpg (10401 bytes)

The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) is dependent upon donations in cash and in kind donations for the operation of the facilities in Amman. Currently ACOR is building and maintains an endowment to ensure the maintenance of the salaries and operations of the center. No donation is too small or too large. ACOR preferes U.S. dollar donations; however, any currency check will be accepted. One exception is the Euro checks which have an excessive charge applied for cashing them. Donations in-kind are also accepted in Amman and occasionally in Boston. Donations in kind require prior approval and acceptance.

You may send a U.S. dollar check to the Boston office and also the Amman office. Either location will accept U.S. dollars and Jordanian dinar checks. 

We request that you contact the nearest ACOR office via Email or FAX with the details of your donation and any specific requests. The Email addresses are:

  • Determine closest ACOR office (see below). 
  • Email/contact ACOR office nearest your location. 
  • Mail the check or items to the Boston or Amman office. 
  • A letter of appreciation / certificate of donation will be mailed to you for tax purposes, although the valuation of in- kind donations, is provided by you, for the donation. 
  • Remember ACOR as one of your favorite, supported non-profit organizations. 


ACOR is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization, as determined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Thus, your donation may be eligible for a charitable deduction for U. S. federal, state and municipal income taxes purposes, depending on your tax situation.
