Are donations to political parties considered charitable giving?

I donated to a national level political party on a monthly basis in 2022, and just wondering if that is considered a charitable donation for writing off on federal taxes.

No.   You cannot take a charitable deduction for a political donation.  You can take a deduction if you donated to a qualified charity.

 According to the IRS“You can’t deduct contributions to organizations that aren’t qualified to receive tax-deductible contributions, including political organizations and candidates.” This includes Political Action Committees (PACs) as well.

Contributions to a political party are not deductible on a tax return.
