  • Stuff our lawyers told us to tell you:

    Per IRS Publication 526 money you give to synagogues and other religious organizations is deductible as a charitable contribution.

    But the money you spend on raffles tickets cannot be deducted as a charitable contribution because you expect to receive a financial or economic benefit as a result of making the contribution.

    However (please keep reading)

    According to Florida Statutes Chapter 849.0935 it is unlawful for any organization that conducts a drawing by chance to require an entry fee, donation, substantial consideration, payment, proof of purchase, or contribution as a condition of entering the drawing or of being selected to win a prize. However, this does not prohibit an organization from suggesting a minimum donation.

    So technically you can enter this raffle without buying a ticket or making a donation. You cannot use this form, you need to call us at (863) 875-9085.

    Since you do not have to pay to enter the raffle, your contribution solely benefits our nonprofit, and we believe therefore it is deductible. If you are unsure we suggest you consult your accountant or other tax professional.
