Is my contribution tax-deductible?
Donations to a personal fundraiser are generally considered to be personal gifts, which are not tax deductible.
If you’re contributing to a charity via a memorial fundraiser, the contribution is generally tax deductible, but you should always consult with a tax professional if you're unsure. You will receive a receipt with the details of your donation.
You are generally able to use your receipt that you received from firstname.lastname@example.org confirming your contribution as a tax receipt -- please note that in order for this to be used as a tax receipt, you MUST have donated to a charitable fundraiser. Personal fundraisers, or individuals personally collecting funds for a charitable cause, are NOT considered tax deductible. Again, you should always consult with a tax professional if you're unsure.
Either way, your contribution makes an important impact and helps to pass on someone’s legacy.
