Because laws vary from one country to another, questions regarding whether donations are tax deductible should be directed to the professional who handles your income tax filings.

C.U.D.D.L.E. International is an activist organization. Our primary focus is on developing, producing and distributing educational materials in an effort to dispel the myths, social biases and legislative impediments about and against such marriages.
