Membership Verification

Our Policy discourages us from reporting the full name and other private information of our members, friends, and volunteers. If you want to publicize your involvement with GAEE, you may do so at your own discretion. While we would normally deny a request to verify an individual’s membership status, in certain ethical situations (such as a university suspect its applicants’ veracity about their involvement with GAEE), we may make an exception. The extent of information we shared with 3rd party on these situations will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Global Association of Economics Education Inc. is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service, a division of the United States Department of the Treasury, as a 501(c)(3) public charity. Our Letter of Determination, as well as Annual Reporting and Filling, can be obtained via the Tax Exempt Organization Search on the IRS website by searching EIN 83-4578590.

Proof of Donation

Our Policy discourages us from reporting the full name and other private information of our patrons and donors. In our Hall of Fame list for Patrons, we only display the first initials and general location of our major patrons. If you are a patron and would like to publicize your donation, you are free to do so at your discretion. Our Appreciation Letter sent via the email provided when a donation is made can be served as the proof of donation. GAEE will deny any request to verify an individual’s claim about their donation to GAEE.
