Please consult your tax advisor or the IRS regarding tax deductions for charitable contributions. Per IRS guidelines on Charitable Contributions, Publication #526, (A.) contributions that cannot be deducted include a contribution to a specific individual, (B.) the part of a contribution from which YOU receive or expect a benefit, and (C.) several additional types listed in the publication. Here are a few examples: A. If you are contributing for the expenses of a person that is going on a mission trip, or helping interns reach their fundraising goals for the Intern Program, your donation can be tax-deductible only if you do not write the person’s name on the check. You may attach a note requesting that the contribution be used to support the person’s trip or the intern’s fundraising goal. If for some reason the person cannot go on the trip, due to IRS guidelines the Mission Waco/Mission World board of directors will determine subsequent use of your contribution. Donations are NOT refundable. B. If you are going on a mission exposure trip yourself, the fees you pay yourself may be tax-deductible depending on the nature of the trip. Please check with us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
