What is WCC's tax status?

Warsaw Community Church is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and donations received are tax-deductible. However, you should consult your tax advisor to see if you can deduct your donations. Contributions of cash, checks or debit card are deductible by donors as charitable contributions under the current provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. WCC will provide statements of actual contributions for the year to be used by individuals in documenting their charitable contributions on their individual income tax returns. Cash gifts are included in statements to the extent WCC is able to identify the donor. Deduction is limited to the year of the actual gift.
