Ask a Tax Professional

Personal Fundraisers vs. Charity Fundraisers

In the eyes of the IRS, there’s a difference between fundraisers for an individual and fundraisers for charity.

Here’s what you need to know: On Give A Hand, donations to a registered charitable organization are usually tax deductible in the U.S.According to the IRS, “In most cases, the amount of charitable cash contributions taxpayers can deduct on Schedule A as an itemized deduction is limited to a percentage (usually 60 percent) of the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income (AGI). Qualified contributions are not subject to this limitation. Individuals may deduct qualified contributions of up to 100 percent of their adjusted gross income. A corporation may deduct qualified contributions of up to 25 percent of its taxable income.”

According to Charity Navigator, “Donations to 501(c)(3) nonprofits are tax-deductible. This means that when you make a contribution to an organization that has been designated as a 501(c)(3) by the IRS and you have not received anything in return for your gift, you are eligible for a deduction when you file your taxes.”

Meanwhile, donations to a personal fundraiser are considered personal gifts, generally speaking. That means the donation to a personal fundraiser is not guaranteed to be considered tax-deductible.

TIP: As a donor, you can search for charity fundraisers.
