What is considered a taxable donation versus one that is not taxable in a church?

Not sure if you are asking about how to claim a donation to the church on your tax return or if you are asking from the church's standpoint and seeing if contributions to the church could be taxable income to them? Can you elaborate?

I am assuming that you meant what is deductible vs non-deductible. You generally may deduct donations you made to a church up to 50% of your AGI. However, you cannot deduct donations designated for use by a specific individual or for which you receive or expect to receive a benefit.
