It’s nice to give back to our community and there are great tax benefits involved as well. Even if you’re like us, and you donate to or sponsor non-profits year round, a generous donation now could save you on tax if you’re near a threshold.
If you do make a donation and want to claim a deduction make sure your donation is tax deductible. Gifts or donations are only deductible when made to an organization that is registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient. Deductibility of school building funds depends on the payment being a voluntary donation.
