Fundraising for individual needs of child with Muscular Dystrophy

Does anyone have advice about fundraising for individual needs i.e. house modification for wheelchair; bathroom, tracking, etc? We want people to be able to write off donation, and us not have to pay taxes on what is raised.Any suggestion on a non-profit organization that might allow us to raise money under their umbrella? Or some other avenue?

Yes,  I researched the rules around the 501c3 and found exactly that info. I haven't heard of the umbrella thing, but I too was wondering why people that have similar needs (like those with disibilities don't group together. That too sounds complicated tho.

What you can't do is form a non profit and raise money for yourself. That's not allowed. Donations, even to a 501c3, that benefit a specific individual are not tax deductible.

Someone has been posting on Facebook about this umbrella organization thing, which sounds fishy to me. If it was that easy - EVERYONE would be doing it, wouldn't they?
