How is my donation used?

Are donations made to the American Cancer Society tax deductible?
Yes, monetary donations to our organization are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. However, certain donations in which the donor receives a good or service in return for a donation are not tax deductible or may be only partially deductible. This would apply to American Cancer Society initiatives such as the Cars For a Cure program, Golf Pass programs, and Discovery Shop purchases. Donors should consult with their tax advisors if they have questions about their deductions.
