Per the 2018 Delaware Nurses Association bylaws:
Dues paid by individuals to professional, membership, and/or fraternal organizations are not generally considered tax deductible as a charitable donation under the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Tax Code. However, dues paid by a self-employed member, an employer, institution, or specific kinds of trusts, may be tax deductible to those entities as a business expense.
Financial donations to the Delaware Nurses Association (DNA) are not tax deductible.
Because it is the goal of the Delaware Nurses Association to always act in the best interest of its members and because each individual's financial circumstances are unique, DNA recommends that you always seek the counsel of your tax adviser.
