2 – Supply A Complete Description Of The Donation

The first part of this receipt will allow the Donor to directly report the items being donated. The blank lines labeled “Description Of Goods Donated” will accept this manifest. If more room is required, you may simply insert more space or blank lines. If this receipt is being filled out off-site of the donation center, then an attachment may be included so long as it is referenced properly (title, date, signature) in this area.    The blank area following the words “…Valued At” will refer to the monetary worth of the entire donation being made. Enter this amount of money immediately after the dollar sign presented.       The precise calendar date when the donation is physically received and in the possession of the charity should be recorded on the lines attached to the label “Donated On.”       


3 – Verify The Recipient’s Tax Status As A 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Entity

A donation made to a 501(c)(3) organization will usually be made with the hope of receiving some credit in one’s taxes. Nearly every, if not all, tax entities that hold the Donor responsible for his or her finances will require some paperwork to verify the above donation has been made. Now that we have described the donation being made, we must also discuss the Recipient Organization. Thus, locate the blank space attached to the “501(c)(3) Organization Name” label then input the full name of the Organization receiving this donation.    The next two lines request the “Mailing Address” and “Telephone” number where the Recipient Organization may be reached for additional information if necessary.     If there is a specific “Website” or home page the Recipient directly maintains or can be reached through, then report its address on the next blank space.      You must report the “Federal Tax ID #” using the two spaces provided.     The paragraph occupying the bottom area of this receipt acts as a declaration that must name the Receiving Representative of the Organization accepting this donation. This individual’s name must be printed onto the blank space just before the term “…A Representative Of The Aforementioned Organization”    The Representative named in the above declaration statement must also sign his or her name on the “Signature” line below it.   After this signature is provided, the Receiving Representative must immediately document the current month, calendar day, and year using the next two blank lines.
