    Rich - The IRS does not recognize donations of time and effort as being the same thing as donations of property or cash. Their logic appears to be that cash donations are made with after-tax dollars while time and effort are not. You paid income tax on your cash when you earned it, so if you donate it away you should be entitled to get that tax back. Time and effort, however, aren't subject to income tax in the first place.
