What Are Charitable Deductions?

Many contributions you make to public charities, including churches, or other religious organizations, schools, universities or other educational institutions, as well as publicly-supported organizations such as the Red Cross, American Heart Association, etc., are considered charitable contributions. These contributions may be deductible on your tax return.

Things to Consider When Making Charitable Deductions

Some things to consider are whether the organization you are donating to is eligible and officially recognized as a nonprofit. Look for cash and noncash gifts because noncash contributions require you to fill out a form if it exceeds $500 per year.
