Can I deduct a charity's credit card fees if I pay them in addition to a donation?

I recently donated $200 to the Salvation Army. I added $8 to cover the cost of the credit card charge.

If you donate money to a charity (by cash, check or credit card) you deduct the amount you donated.  You don’t have to worry about what their expenses are or how they spent it.
