What about deducting a contribution to the Nature Conservancy, for which you get a magazine? To me the value of the mag is zero

Apparently you can tell them not to send you the magazine:

You'd think they'd want to make it easy for you to tell how much the magazine is worth so that you could report it correctly to the IRS but I couldn't turn that up in the Googling I did.

Perhaps they don't want to publish the info so that people can claim $0 and the IRS doesn't have any value to use against their donors saying its worth that amount.
Or perhaps they'll give anyone/everyone a free mag just for asking (in which case arguably it is a $0 benefit)
