      Are donations to The Heritage Foundation tax deductible?

      Yes. The Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and contributions are tax-deductible for income, gift, and estate taxes. Our federal tax identification number is 23-7327730.

      Just because an entity is a 'charity', doesn't make it benign. Let's play a game. Pretend that Stahl is on the board of The Heritage Foundation. Where would you stand now when it comes to her giving favourable copy?

    •  Not all 501 c 3 orgs are charities (2+ / 0-)

      They're simply non-profit organizations.  These corporations can choose to designate themselves as charities, but they have to meet further requirements to do so.

      Peterson's group is not a charitable organization, they don't provide any kind of financial assistance to the public.

      •  Incorrect. (0+ / 0-)

        There are operating and non-operating (grant-making foundations), but all 501(c)3 foundations can call themselves charities (which is not even an official IRS designation), and all offer the exact same tax-deductibility for contributions.
