JWHA does not give tax advice, but as a 501c3 organization it is possible under certain tax codes that a donor could claim a charitable deduction. While JWHA will issue receipts, it is incumbent on the individual member (and would solely be the responsibility of the member) to consult with a tax preparer for the appropriate way to make any claim. The issuance of a receipt is ordinary practice for any 501c3 organization, and does not in itself constitute “tax advice.”
