Donate to east west bookshop

East West Bookshop is a Washington State nonprofit organization but it is NOT tax-exempt under the Internal Revenue Service because the sale of books and gifts is not, by itself, a charitable activity. In the same way, receiving benefits in return (discounts) disallows a potential deduction. Besides, with recent changes in federal tax laws, fewer individuals are able to have a tax benefit from their donations. If the tax-deductible aspect of your support for East West is important to you and you are willing to forgo the "perks," you can make a "restricted for East West" donation to "Ananda Seattle" because Ananda established East West to express its respect for all spiritual traditions and to give people of like-mind (staff) an opportunity to serve together (both are integral to Ananda's tax-exempt purpose).
