What is a Donation Receipt?

Donation receipts provide donors with a written record of their charitable contributions. Receipts let donors know that their contribution was well-received and they also help the donor keep track of their finances, since, in some instances, charitable donations can reduce income tax levels for the year.

  • Do I need a Donation Receipt?

    Donation receipts are not always mandatory, but they are often expected and are a good way to show your appreciation as an organization. If the donor wants to claim a charitable contribution on their federal tax return, a donation receipt is required for donations over $250. The IRS also requires a receipt if a donor wants to claim any single contribution over $75, where goods or services were received in exchange for the donation.

    Donation receipts typically include:

    • Name of the charity and donor

    • Donation date

    • Description of any donated goods
