Making 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.
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
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
