There are times when you stumble on a good cause or a great movement, and you think to yourself: “I want to contribute to this. I think this is important!”. That’s fine, of course. The recipient will be very happy with your contribution, you will feel good and with a little luck the goal of the effort is achieved. You transfer the money and that was that. Or, maybe not? There’s a small chance the money your contributed was a tax deductible donation. That’s a bonus of course! The government in certain countries will allow non-profit organisations to offer tax benefits such as tax rebates, tax-free donations, tax credits or tax deductible donations to people who donate to good causes.
