Thanks for the replies. There is a lot to digest in Publication 526. It is 27 pages long! I am going to call the IRS and have them mail me the publication..

I don't think we are in the big leagues when it comes to donations. We DO itemize. Our donations are between $1000 and $2000 per year. They are split between: (1.) Cash (on credit card) to the food bank, and animal shelters, and (2.) Donations of goods (clothing, furniture, kitchenware, etc.) to the Salvation Army.

So..... without me reading the whole IRS publication 526, any additional thoughts on my situation?

I thought it was interesting that for 2021, I could donate 100% of my AGI? I am certainly not in that category, but that is interesting.
