Is This Deductible? Your Charitable Donations and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Tax Deductions and Credits Intuit_Pink_2014

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and fund raising to find a cure for breast cancer has become one of the most donated charities ($257.85M in 2012)

Looking for ways to donate?

Here at TurboTax, we geared up this week for our annual Pink Week, which kicked off on Monday.

Food is a great option to raise funds. We hosted dessert sales in our café and a Wednesday ice cream social, with funds going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Visuals and social gatherings are also a great way to raise awareness. Pink Week decorations took over common areas at TurboTax headquarters, and one of our own gave a lunchtime learning on her experience with breast cancer.

But the ultimate tip to donating is simple: everything counts. From bake sales to simply wearing a color – your time, money, and dedication does make a difference. Lastly, remember to track all your great donations on ItsDeductible, this will make a difference come tax time.
