For corporations considering philanthropy, donating excess shoe and apparel inventory to Soles4Souls not only helps those in need but also provides potential tax benefits. Under Section 170(e)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code*, businesses can make a meaningful impact while receiving a tax deduction. The specific benefits depend on the corporate structure and contribution. To understand how your company can benefit from this opportunity, we recommend consulting with a tax advisor to detail the deduction specifics for your contributions to Soles4Souls. By supporting Soles4Souls, your company assists in providing footwear/apparel to individuals and families in need, furthering our mission to disrupt the cycle of poverty. *Not applicable for international donations
