The tax-deductible status of donations to YouCaring fundraisers varies based upon the tax status of the organizer.
Most donations made on YouCaring.com go directly to a beneficiary rather than a charitable non-profit organization, and therefore are not tax-deductible.
Donations may be tax deductible when they are received by and directly benefit a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a government-issued EIN. In these cases, the organization will be responsible for issuing you a tax receipt.
If having a tax-deductible status for your donation is a requirement, you should check with the organizer prior to donating to that particular fundraiser. You will want to verify that they are a registered 501(c)3 with a government-issued EIN and that they can provide you with a tax receipt.
You can contact the fundraiser organizer to determine their non-profit status and/or request a tax receipt by clicking "Contact the Organizer" button in the "About the Organizer" section towards the bottom of the fundraiser page. This will send them a direct email.
We recommend that you consult with your tax adviser for additional information regarding contributions you may make on YouCaring.com.
