Donor Acknowledgement Letter

Donors to your nonprofit should receive:

1)    a thank you letter and

2)    a receipt for their tax-deductible donation.

The IRS requires that a charity send an acknowledgement letter for any donation that is more than $250. The donor uses this letter as proof of his or her donation and right to a tax deduction. These letters should be sent immediately after the donation is received.

The minimum requirements of that acknowledgement letter are:

* Your organization’s name

* The amount of the cash contribution

* A description (but not value) of non-cash contribution (sometimes called gift-in-kind). The donor is responsible for estimating the value of non-cash contributions when they are reported to the IRS on a donor’s tax return

* A statement that no goods or services were provided by the organization, if applicable

* A description and good faith estimate of the value of goods or services, if any, that the organization provided in return for the contribution. An example of this is a benefit dinner where some of the money received pays for the actual dinner, while the rest is a donation

* A statement that goods or services, if any, that the organization provided in return for the contribution consisted entirely of intangible benefits if applicable. An example might be a small gift typically of a value under $65
