Charitable Donations

Hi tax angels,

I have a question about charitable donations – I know there is only a certain amount that I can deduct each year… I am wondering if only 501c3 orgs are eligible?
This year so far I have donated to one 501c3 campaign, donated monthly to a non 501c3 mutual aid group, and donated about 25 billable hours to a disabled community member who needed help with pets.

Is only the 501c3 org deductible?

Thx ahead of time for the help!!!

(Hi angel! Just seeing this now, sorry you were left hanging! Discourse never showed it to me on mobile, maybe that happened to others too.)

Yes, only the 501c3 donations are tax deductible. This article goes into more detail: https://www.thebalance.com/can-you-deduct-pro-bono-services-from-your-income-taxes-3515623
