*Please note the U.S. Fund for UNICEF is not able to give receipts for donations to individuals, businesses, or organizations that donate gifts either "in kind" or auction items for our UNICEF fundraiser. Because the donation of the item is being made to a volunteer-led fundraiser, and is not being made directly to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, items are not being donated to a non-profit organization, and therefore are not eligible for a tax deduction.
