Update on iRRs and iGive

Our Tier 1 listed partners with FCRA can now receive funds from abroad and their donors will receive the appropriate tax breaks for the same ( i.e. 501c3 and GiftAid for US and UK donors respectively). The iRRs (iGive Reimbursement Report) that we accept for funds raised through iGive, fulfills all requirements under US/UK laws. Hence we can accept donations from "US Taxpayers" and "UK Taxpayers" and provide them with the appropriate tax benefit..
