basically how my accountant told me it worked was it was like trading checks - I do the work and essentially record the revenue then give it back to the charity for a tax receipt. At the end of the day charitables aren't 100% deductable where I'm from so it's actually a losing proposition all in all. Now if I do charitble work I just do it for a mention in their newsletter or whatnot. I don't bother with invoices and receipts anymore.
