Giving Calculator

 
 

At Charity Navigator, we believe that giving to charity is serious business. Not only should you take the time to research the charities you consider supporting, but you should analyze your finances to see how much you can afford in your efforts to bring about maximum institutional change.

Simply enter the amount you'd like to give and your federal tax bracket (see chart). The calculator will display the net cost of the donation and the tax savings. You may be surprised to learn that you can afford to be even more generous than you thought.

  • Head of household : $8,950
  • Married taxpayers filing jointly and qualifying widow(er)s: $12,200
  • Single and Married taxpayers filing separately: $6,100

*Your standard deduction may be increased if you are age 65 or older or blind.
