Let’s say I’m an individual and I’m trying to organize a fundraiser. I’m trying to pay for the expenses. Is there a way that sponsors can receive a tax deduction if they cut a check to the business I will be running it at? I don’t work for that business. I also don’t work for the organization (non profit) I’m raising money for.

If this question is confusing, ask for clarification.

According to 501(c)(3), fiscal sponsorship only applies to organization, not individual.

We're not sure if there is a work-around for your status but we'll try to ask around for further feedback. Cheers!

Thank you for your reply. I know I am not able to offer a tax deduction myself. What I’m asking is can the business notify the non profit of the payment? Maybe they can get a deduction based on that payment made for a fundraiser.

In theory, the company receiving the donation could write a separate letter to each donor stating how much was received and that payment will be forwarded to the non-profit.
That's a lot to ask from the company receiving the donation.
Instead, can the donor simply be asked to make a check payable to the non-profit and the company can then forward those checks to the non-profit?
