When it comes to making tax-deductible donations, it's important to understand the types of organizations that can receive these contributions. In general, donations made to political parties, candidates, and political action committees (PACs) are not tax-deductible. However, certain organizations such as social welfare organizations (often referred to as “501(c)(4) organizations”) and political organizations classified as charitable organizations (often referred to as “527 organizations”), may be tax-deductible. This is where Daffy, the Donor Advised Fund for You™, comes into play. Daffy is a tax-exempt public charity as described in Sections 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1), and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code.
