IRS Matching Gift Information
IRS Publication 526 regarding the IRS 80/20 Rule status charitable contributions from which a donor receives or expects to receive benefits (the right to purchase parking passes, priority seating for events, etc.) must also be applied to the matching gift claims as well. If benefits are related to a TSF contribution, the matching claim could only be submitted for 80% of the portion of the contribution which is considered truly charitable and tax deductible. Please make note of this change when considering your TSF contribution.
