According to the IRS, any type of elections donation or contribution is not tax deductible. This includes contributing to a Political candidate, a campaign fund or even a newsletter. In your case, this would also include the money you donate through your job. If you decide to attend a political dinner, you can't deduct this from your taxes either.
