Donation acknowledgements letters

  • Donation acknowledgements letters will include:
  • The name of our organization
  • Date of the contribution
  • The cash contribution amount
  • The description (but not value) of any noncash contributions

Donation acknowledgment letters will be mailed to donors no later than January 31 of the year following the donation.

Exceptions to donor acknowledgement letters:

“Tokens” Goods and services are considered insubstantial tokens if these three things are true: The donor gave at least $51*; The item bears the organization’s name or logo (think calendars, mugs or posters); The item does not cost more than the annual inflation adjustment

* Quid Pro Quo will include a description and good faith estimate of the value of goods or services, if any, that our organization provided in return for the contribution
