What is a 501(c)3 Charitable organization and how does this affect my donation
According to the IRS (see original, full post here) ‘To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.’

A 501c3 organization must adhere to strict qualifications and guidelines according to the IRS. Organizations cannot operate for the sole benefit of 1 individual or business. They cannot push for any one candidate or particular form of legislation. At the Giving we meet all qualifications under Section 501c3 of the IRS tax code.

Is my Donation to charity going to give me full fair market value for my vehicle?
Two of the best resources, which are continuously updated by the Internal Revenue Service, are IRS publication 561 and IRS publication 526. We ask all of our donors to look at and review publication 561 and 526 prior to giving. Specifically, if you want to learn about Full Fair Market Value for your donation, review page 10 Determining Fair Market Value.

In short, both Publications refer to the importance of looking at comparables and the open market; at the current time of donation. This will help you determine full fair market value of your item. Often, you can use the sale price received by the charity you donate to, as a guideline in determining full value. For the best possible market value determination you should use several verified sources known for their expertise in your field. This will help ensure maximum value and zero headaches with the IRS.
