Making a Donation Receipt

  • 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.  

  • What is included in a Donation Receipt?

    Donation receipts typically include:

    • Name of the charity and donor

    • Donation date

    • Description of any donated goods

    • The monetary value of the contribution

    • Statement regarding whether or not any goods or services were provided in exchange for the donation

  • How do I get a Donation Receipt?

    Making a Donation Receipt with Rocket Lawyer is easy. All you need to do is answer a few simple questions using Rocket Lawyer’s document builder.

    Consider these questions before you start:

    • Does the organization qualify as a 501(c)(3) charity?

    • When was the donation made and received?

    • Did the donor receive any benefits from the donation?

    • Who will sign the Donation receipt on behalf of the organization?

    If you are missing any information, you may save the document and complete it at a later time.
