Contributions made for new hospital bed for sick church member
Forgive me if my question is 'a given' ... but in reading the posts I was prompted to something we recently did in our church for a congregant.
He is not a church employee but he is someone with a terminal illness that was in need of a new hospital bed for his home. The church put the word out and many different people gave to help raise money for us to buy him a new bed... and we did~ Yay!
My question is I am under the assumption that the money people gave for this would be tax-deductible donations... but some of the comments confused me in that they said if the money is going toward a specific individual it can not be tax-deductible.
Can anyone help clarify this for me? ...or point me to the best resources to research it further?
Thanks and God Bless~
