Yes, Athletes Without Limits is a registered 501(c)3 charity so your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. If you donate online you will immediately receive your donation acknowledgement by email. For other donations our volunteer staff will send you a letter at the end of the tax year.
Sure, in fact, we can make the most of your check donation since we avoid paying for credit card processing fees. Just download our donation form, which includes mailing instructions. Be sure to include your email so we can send you a tax acknowledgement.
Athletes Without Limits is a public charity so by law cannot provide tax-deductions for donations intended for a single individual. If you'd still like to sponsor out-of-pocket costs for a specific athlete, you may do so by providing the athlete's family with the funds directly — again this is considered a gift to an individual and is not tax-deductible.
Those wishing to restrict a donation for a specific sport may do so but we hope you'll consider how much more impact your general contribution can have on the sustainability of Athletes Without Limits. We are 90% volunteer run with a virtual office and low overhead, but because we work with stand-out athletes across the US and across nine sports, it is difficult to realize economies of scale working within a single sport. Also consider that some of our athletes compete in more than one sport or may be training for opportunities in new Para-sports as they become available.
