Payment & Tax Information

Charitable contributions to non-profit organizations are welcomed by tax laws. Federal income tax laws allow deductions for the amount in excess of the fair market value of goods or services you receive. Tax advantages vary with the gift and the donor’s financial circumstances. COSI encourages donors to consult with their tax counsel or attorneys as to the actual benefit to the donor or to his or her estate from various forms of suggested gift transactions.
