Answers Most Frequently Asked Questions

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes. DMF foundation is a 501c3, and your donation is fully tax-deductible.  Even a portion of your registration fee is deductible; you can email [email protected] if you need a receipt for a portion that is deductible. For example, a golf registration fee might be $200, the “cost” to the golf course and the portion returned to you in goods and services may be $175 (your golf, food, drinks, etc.), making $25 your net donation.
However, if you make a straight donation, say $200, that is 100% deductible.
