Are contributions tax deductible?

All participating hospitals are non-profit 501(c)3 organizations, so cash donations through Log A Load, which are channeled directly to the hospital, are fully tax-deductible as donations to charitable organizations.  As in the case of other charitable fundraisings, contributions raised through means such as auctions or carnivals may be partially deductible, for instance, if the winning bid for an auction item exceeds the item’s assessed value.
