Donations of Commodities
Our ministry to the poor involves a lot of very tangible items. There are a number of ways you can become involved. Food is always in need at all our ministry sites. There are Good Samaritan laws to encourage the donation of food and products to nonprofit organizations for distribution to needy individuals. This new law makes it easier to donate. Please check the needs in the city nearest you as posted on our web site.
Cityteam has ongoing food box programs that you can participate in by organizing a food drive or special event in your office, congregation, or community group to collect food and raise money for people in need. Contact us at 1-888-Cityteam for further information. Clothing and household items are also needed at many of our locations. Please check the needs in the city nearest you throughout our web site. Office & Computer Equipment: Cityteam is in need of good usable office items so we can expend more of our funds on the poor.
The general rule states that a taxpayer who contributes appreciated inventory or certain other ordinary income property is permitted a charitable deduction only for an amount equal to the taxpayer's basis in the contributed property, not its fair market value. Congress refined this statute in 1976 to allow corporate donors an increased deduction, under certain circumstances, for contributions of ordinary income property to a public charity. If you are considering making such a gift and would like to know more about this, please call 1-888-Cityteam . Of course, donors should always consult with a tax advisor in determining their specific deduction. For more information, see the IRS document on Noncash Charitable Contributions.
