Using the Right Words
HRC and the HRC Foundation are two separate but affiliated organizations. Because of HRC’s grassroots lobbying and political work, gifts to HRC are not tax-deductible. Gifts to the HRC Foundation are fully tax-deductible based on the Foundation’s entirely non-political, educational, and outreach mission.
When you’re deciding how to leave a legacy for equality, the tax consequences of a particular gift may be a consideration. If the tax consequences of your gift are not a consideration for you, a gift to HRC will give us the greatest flexibility in putting your gift to work on behalf of the LGBTQ community. Either way, your gift will be invested in the shared mission of a future of equal rights for all people.
