That’s ok. I don’t mind and have donated anyway (I’m a veteran myself). Just didn’t know whether to keep the receipt for taxes.
Thanks for what you do,
No it's not.
The recordings I give away and the extra hours I will work at the military hospital I work at in Bethesda, MD are very meaningful to the veterans, their family and staff at the hospital.
To answer your question -I am not a non-profit, so it is not tax deductible.
I don't normally do fundraising for my work there, but I thought it would be a great way to get enough funds to make a new recording and at the same time have the community share in my music ministry there. :-)

Is this tax deductible?

The recording won't be out until September. The campaign goes through the end of this month when I actually go in to the studio and record.
