Checks and cash donations ($5.00 or greater) clearly labeled with the donors information, will be provided with a tax deductible receipt in accordance with tax regulations. Use the Fundraising Tracking Form to keep track of your donors.
Donors who wish to claim a tax deduction for a gift-in-kind donation (e.g. donated food for your event or other physical items), please complete and submit the gift-in-kind donation form and include the value of the donated item(s).
Be sure to show your appreciation to all of your donors and volunteers by sending a thank you note at the conclusion of your fundraising efforts. See our sample thank you letter.
- Keep checks or cash private and secure during your event or fundraiser. If you are using a bucket or box to collect donations, keep an eye on your collection point for safety.
- Take care when traveling with donations after your event.
- Please inform the Foundation of any effort to recruit major financial underwriters to ensure there is no duplication of underwriting efforts already underway.
