My wife is a Personal Fitness Trainer and runs a small Schedule C company.
She donated a certificate for 3 PFT sessions to a local charity - this was "sold" at a silent auction.
Question - is this Advertising for the Schedule C company, or is it a personal charitable deduction (or indeed something else)?
The answer is, is not really either. Donation of personal services is non-deductible. The cost of any product used during the 3 sessions would be deductible as advertising (ex free towels, exercise logs, water bottle, etc).
Good for you for donating your time and energy to the charity!
