Charity is personal (i.e. Schedule A, not Schedule C). Charity is never treated as a business expense by an incorporated business such as a sole proprietor or LLC. Only "C" corporations get to include it as a direct expense against net business income. Please add within the Deductions and Credits section of Turbo Tax.

Here's a good article by the Small Business Association:
