If someone is donating funds to the church to go to a particular ministry, is that tax-deductible? This particular ministry is not affiliated with the church, meaning they only use the church's facilities. I'm thinking that if the ministry is 501(c)(3), it would be tax-deductible, but if they are not, would it not be tax-deductible?

Ministry Specific

I would think that if you are giving to a specific ministry, that ministry would give you a receipt.
This would have nothing to do with the church or facility they meet in.
See their leadership for the receipt.

Agree with previous answer. . .

For example the girl and boy scouts use our church facility, but if I donate to them, they provide the receipt to me for tax purposes.
