Creating Donor Receipts that Follow US Tax Laws for Non-Profit Donations Received

If you are a US based non-profit organization using Donately to fundraise for your cause, one important thing to consider is making sure your donation receipts follow the IRS charitable giving guidelines.


In the United States, if someone donates $250 or more, there are certain things that are required when sending out donation receipts. You can find a list of those items that need to be displayed on those donation receipts here.


Since Donately has one donation receipt that can be utilized and customized for donors to receive, it's important to consider your large donation donors when crafting your general donation receipt. Since small gift donors won't be impacted by the requirements needed on receipts for larger donors, many organizations include everything the IRS requires on large donation donor receipts on ALL of their receipts.
