What amount of my income can I claim as tithed/donated without having to have receipts or a paper trail?

A coworker told me that you can claim 3% of your income as tithed/donated without having to ever produce receipts or documentation that you've done so, even if audited. Any know if this is true? I'm all for donating, and not having to keep track of receipts and paperwork like this would make it easier. In my state we don't have to fill out a separate return for taxes; we only have to do the federal one.
