The U.S. Army Ranger Association, Inc., (USARA), is a Georgia Corporation organized, for tax purposes, as a Tax-Exempt Organization pursuant to the provisions of Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(19) specifically for Veterans' Organizations. Additionally, Internal Revenue Code Section IRC 170(c)(3) may provide an income tax deduction for donations/contributions to USARA due to the facts it is organized in the United States, and no part of its net earnings inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. Accordingly, cash and appreciated assets such as stocks, bonds, airplanes etc. contributions to the USARA are deductible by the donor based upon the assets' market value on the date of the contribution or gift. Many donors choose to contribute appreciated assets since it avoids the tax on the capital gain while giving the donor the tax benefit of the fair market value of the donated asset. Receipts for donations will be sent for all individual donations more than $100. Please consult with your personal tax advisor to verify any applicable deduction.
