Are charitable donations to foreign charities deductible on my U.S. tax return?

In general, these charitable donations will not be deductible on your U.S. tax return. To be deductible, charitable donations need to be made to qualified organizations. A qualified organization is generally one that has received 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. If you are unsure, you can ask any organization whether it is a qualified organization, and most will be able to tell you. Or you can use the tool here to search for qualified organizations.
