The VinaCapital Foundation

What is a 501(c)(3) organization?
VinaCapital Foundation is a USA-registered 501(c)(3) organization, which means we are exempt from US federal income tax. 501(c)(3) is the portion of the US Internal Revenue Code that allows for federal tax exemption of nonprofit organizations, specifically those that are considered public charities, private foundations or private operating foundations. It is regulated and administered by the US Department of Treasury through the Internal Revenue Service. This means that your donations to us are tax-deductible in the US, which we will issue a Receipt for you to account for it.
What does your organization do?
Founded in 2006, VCF’s mission is to create healthcare and education solutions to transform the lives of underserved and marginalized children and women in Vietnam. The work of VCF touches the lives of millions of Vietnamese in 63 provinces every year. We invest in 3 main areas: - Grassroots medical programs: Heartbeat Vietnam, which funds children’s heart surgeries, including pre- and post-operative care; Rural Outreach Clinics, which provides free health examination for children in remote areas; and grassroots assistance with psychosocial activities for children and their parents. - Healthcare capacity building programs: Survive to Thrive/ Critical Response, which provides training and equipment for emergency and neonatal care in rural hospitals; Clean Water installs filtration systems to provide potable water for underserved communities; National Emergencies, which organizes and implements disaster and pandemic relief. - Education program: Brighter Path educates and transforms ethnic minority female students with scholarships, mentoring and life-changing Girls’ Clubs so they become agents of change in their rural communities. VCF’s vision is a thriving Vietnam where all children and women are healthy, educated and empowered to benefit from economic growth and contribute to improvements in their communities. Across every program runs deep commitments to children’s and women’s rights, gender equality, improved nutrition, environmental protection and poverty reduction.
What is your tax ID number or EIN?
The VinaCapital Foundation’s tax number in Vietnam is 0310 516 524. The VinaCapital Foundation’s EIN (Federal Employer Identification Number for the United States Internal Revenue Service) is 20-8986703.
What is the role of the VinaCapital Group?
Mr. Don Lam - VinaCapital Group’s Co-Founder and CEO, co-founded VCF with startup funds and VinaCapital matched all donations for the first two years. Since then, it has remained VCF’s largest donor with a generous annual donation for overhead costs. Mr. Don Lam is VinaCapital Foundation’s Chairman of the Board.

Donating to The VinaCapital Foundation

Where does the money go when I donate to your organization?
100% of your donations go directly to support our beneficiaries. We are transparent in receiving and spending all of our donations. Our overhead costs are donated by VinaCapital Group, so that 100% of the donations we receive are used to support disadvantaged children and women in Vietnam. For the past 15 years, VinaCapital Foundation has maintained and ensured our transparency by providing tax returns, audit reports, and annual reports with details of our program achievements and financial status. We are annually audited by international audit firms. We also have earned the Platinum Seal of Transparency for three years in a row (2019 - 2021), the highest level of recognition offered by the nonprofit analyst GuideStar, an organization that assesses and reports on the efficacy and transparency of US-based nonprofit organizations.
Where can I find your financial documents?

How do I know if the money I donated has any tangible effect on the lives of those people?
At VCF we create and implement grassroots and large-scale projects that have long-term benefits to disadvantaged children and women in Vietnam. Children are the country’s future, and we want to ensure that they have the best possible start in life in terms of health and development. VCF provides regular reports and evaluations to our donors so they can see exactly how their donation is helping to change lives. Reading about our work is not only one way to experience it; we also strongly encourage our donors to visit our projects and meet our beneficiaries. For those who are unable to come to Vietnam to see our work first-hand, we will do our utmost to bring Vietnam to you through our website. We encourage you to get to know our beneficiaries, staff, volunteers and your fellow donors as you read and hear their stories. For those who are in Vietnam, we also build trust by involving our donors in the program work they support. That way they see first-hand how effectively their donations are being deployed.
