Are my donations 100% tax-deductible?
Yes. FOUR PAWS International is a 501(c)(3) organization which is qualified to receive tax-deductible donations. Although a contribution to a charitable organization is generally deductible by individuals who itemize their deductions, an individual’s right to such deduction is subject to a variety of limitations, including the obligation to obtain an acknowledgment regarding contributions of $250 or more from the charitable organization. FOUR PAWS recommends that you consult with a tax professional regarding the tax deductibility of any contribution.
Who will have access to my personal information after I’ve made a donation?
