Here are some common questions about your charitable donations and tax deductions. Community Seed provides this information for your convenience. As always, consult your own tax or financial advisor before making any personal financial decisions.
When I make a charitable contribution to Community Seed, is that contribution tax-deductible?
Absolutely! Community Seed is a qualified 501(c)(3) religious non-profit per determination from the IRS — and that means every donation you give counts as a tax-deductible donation. When you make a donation through our site, be sure to save and/or print the confirmation e-mail you receive from Community Seed for your tax records.
I want my giving to be deductible for this tax year. Do I need to make a donation by a certain time?
Yes. Any donation you made on or by December 31 of a year will qualify as a deduction for that year. Any donations made after January 1 (even at 12:01 a.m. on New Year’s Day) go towards the next tax year.
Do I need to itemize my tax return to get a deduction for charitable giving?
Yes, you do. Donations are only tax-deductible if you itemize deductions on your tax return. When you file your taxes, you’ll need to itemize your donations on the Schedule A of the 1040 form.
You should consult with your tax advisor for all of the details.
When I donate, will I get a receipt?
When you donate to Community Seed, you will receive a confirmation e-mail, which will serve as your receipt. You should always keep a hard copy of your receipt for your tax records.
