Value of Volunteer Time:
What is the estimated value of volunteer time? How can this be used?
Idaho Hall of Fame provides an extensive chart covering the estimated dollar value of volunteer time. This figure is based on the average wage of non-management, non-agricultural workers as determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, increased by 12 percent increase to account for fringe benefits. Although it is only a tool, it does help show the immense value volunteers provide to an organization.
Charitable organizations most frequently use the value of volunteer time for recognition events or in their communications to show how much support an organization receives from its volunteers.
Can volunteer time be deducted from a volunteer’s income taxes?
No, time spent performing services for a charitable organization is not tax-deductible. However, mileage for vehicle use incurred while volunteering may be deductible as long as the purpose of the trip was not recreational and other criteria are met.
