Non-Cash Donation of Equipment

by Bessie

An individual has agreed to allow our church to use his outdoor stage equipment/apparatus for a community picnic at NO COST to our church if we (our church) provide him with a non-cash donation receipt.

Can our church provide such a receipt?

If so, what should the wording be on this receipt?

Rent-Free Use of Equipment Not Deductible

No. The value of rent-free use of equipment cannot be claimed as a charitable contribution.

See IRC 170(f)(3)(A)
