Hours donated = zero deduction.  Your time has no value in the eyes of the IRS.

Any *hard costs*  like paper, pencils, partial cost of the toner cost of the printer....those go to Sch A.

Former Chump... umm.... AllStar.

If you really want to claim it, I think the only place would be in the church bulletin.
