Charitable Tax Deductions
The EMGS Endowment Fund is part of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society, a charitable, nonprofit, 501(c) 3 organization under the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the EMGS Endowment Fund typically will be considered tax deductible contributions. Every contribution received is acknowledged in writing. The written acknowledgement serves as a receipt for tax purposes. Contributions made by credit card at year end must be received at EMGS Headquarters by December 31. If year-end contributions are made by check, the check must be dated December 31 or earlier, but it need not be received at EMGS Headquarters by December 31.
The EMGS Endowment Fund has received a generous contribution in memory of Heinrich V. Malling, PhD, who died on Monday, May 23, 2016, in the presence of his dedicated wife Martha, and their children.
Dr. Malling was a founding member and scientific leader in the EMGS Society. He was a major force in leading the young Society to develop sensitive molecular tools to measure environmentally induced mutations, and to understand how mutations affect cell function. One of his greatest passions was to understand the environmental causes of germ cell mutations, and how to reduce the heritable risks to future generations. Throughout his career, he has been a reliable and generous mentor, and many current Society members have benefited from his scientific wisdom, optimism and support. Heinrich, the Society thanks you.
