Please note that the donation goal paid by volunteers to register for a Service Learning Trip covers trip-related expenses and therefore is not tax deductible. If donors have general questions about whether donations to MEDLIFE are tax-deductible, they can call MEDLIFE’S U.S.-based office at 1-844-MEDLIFE (1-844-633-5433). However, specific questions about the deductibility of contributions should be directed to the donor’s qualified tax advisor.
