Making donations to a nonprofit organization can be a rewarding experience for everyone involved. When making a donation to a nonprofit, you are able to:

  • Support a Cause. Donating to a nonprofit allows you to support a charitable cause. Nonprofit organizations operate with the help of grants and fundraising, so making a contribution can help facilitate the overall efforts of the group. You can donate money, or goods and services (known as “in kind” donations).

  • Deduct from your Taxes. Donations to many nonprofits are tax deductible—a privilege not granted to other types of corporations or organizations. This means that when you make a donation to a certain nonprofit, you are eligible to deduct a portion of that donation’s value from your yearly income taxes. The rules for how much you can deduct vary by the type of donation; in some cases, “in kind” donations may not be tax deductible, so consult your state’s tax agency for details.
