The past donation programs dealt with "Buy Low" & "Donate High".

As the government has always wanted people to donate to charities, the government has offered people who donated, "Tax Credits". The individuals, no matter how they obtained the products, could donate them at their "Fair Market Value". They could then receive the "Tax Credit" based on that value, no matter if it is lower or higher than the purchase price.

In these past programs, the individual could purchase product at a low price and donate the products at the "Fair Market Value".

This gave the participant a "Tax Credit", where-by either reducing the amount of taxes owed or refunding the participant money.

The following is an example of what you might have done:
