The real question should be, Why wouldn't people donate a domain name! Talk about one of the best ways to benefit society and yourself. Domain names cost around $9 to $15 at the top registrars. If you were lucky enough to find an available domain that is worth much more than what you paid for it now, a tax deduction and free vacation await.
The most sought after domains, meaning people are willing to pay much more than your $10 registration fee, are domains that: have a .com or .org extension, easy to spell, cool sounding, length, eye catching, memorable, business and profit making ability. Domain Name Appraisal
Your tax situation is something you MUST discuss with your accountant or tax advisor. The size of the tax deduction is determined by the current market value of the domain name, as opposed to the cost of the domain when it was purchased. Here are a few examples of domain name donation tax benefits previous tax classes have enjoyed on their minimal domain investment...
|Donor Name||Appraisal||Tax Rate||Net Cost||Tax Deduction|

We either develop the domain name to benefit our program if relevant, or liquidate the domain at the price your appraisal suggests the worth is. Obviously we don't give domains to those in need like our car donation program. This is an excellent way to help us fund our programs while reaping the tax deduction.
We would be happy to look over your portfolio and work with you regarding such a generous donation. Believe it or not, this happens much more often than you might think.

If you can verifiably prove to the IRS other website owners are paying to have a sponsored link or text link on your site, you can donate text link ads to us and enjoy the tax benefits!

A simple answer, "yes please". Word of mouth is everything in the world of Charitable giving. We do not spend any donation proceeds on press releases or Pay per click / ppc sponsored ads, ever. If you want to help us, press releases showcasing what the Works of Life organization does along with plugs showcasing each of the donation possibilities are invaluable (to us). The IRS needs a receipt though if you want to claim the tax deduction. After we iron out the details and agree on the content of the press release, your payment can be considered a cash donation, and you get to see your contribution at work.
The only fees you will be charged will be the cost of your domain name appraisal or smarter yet, appraisals. You must submit a Domain name Appraisal to the IRS to verify your tax deduction claim. We strongly suggest using a highly respected company for your appraisal. Fortunately we have a few you can consider here: Domain Name Appraisal
