How to Write

Download: Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word (.docx) or Open Document Text (.odt)

1 – Save The Habitat For Humanity Donation Receipt

The PDF form to issue a receipt for a donation made to the Habitat For Humanity can be obtained through either the “Adobe PDF” link or “PDF” button. Similarly, this receipt can be accessed as a “Microsoft Word (.docx)” or “Open Document Text (.ODT)” using the appropriate links or buttons on this page.


2 – Provide Information Defining The Receipt And Organization

The first labeled space “Receipt No.” functions as your display area for the filing number your Organization intends to attach to this document.      Input the Habitat For Humanity “Tax ID Number (EIN)” on the next line. Notice this is formatted to readily accept the Entity Identification Number your local Tax Entity has designated to your Organization.   


3 – Identify The Habitat For Humanity Donor

After presenting the items necessary to refer to the receipt and the ORganization properly, you will need to address the Donor’s identity. The line attached to the “Donated By” label        Naturally, some additional items to support the Donor’s identity should be included to this receipt, therefore, report his or her “Street Address,” “City,” “State,” and “Zip” code on this document using the next four labeled areas.     


4 – Discuss The Submitted Donation

The items or money the Donor has given to the Organization will need some details entered to define it properly. First, tend to the “Donation Date” line with the actual calendar date that the donated funds or items were received by the Habitat For Humanity.            The exact dollar amount that represents the donation must be furnished on the “Donation Value” line. If this is an in-kind donation of property (i.e. a power saw), then research what a reasonable amount of money would be expected in exchange for that property in the current market and enter this value. If this donation was monetary, simply enter the donated amount to this line. If the donation was both (i.e. a check and a bicycle) simply add the value of these two items together on this line.   Finally, deliver some specifics to name the type of donation that was made and what exactly was donated. For instance, you may enter “Monetary Donation – Personal Check ($500.00) Widget Vacuum Cleaner: Condition – Used, Color: Beige, Model: Storm, Value: $50.00”   


5 – The Habitat For Humanity Representative Must Sign This Receipt

The person representing the Habitat For Humanity by accepting this donation will need to sign his or her name on the “Representative Signature” line to prove this receipt is authentic.      In addition to his or her signature, the Representative must print his or her name on the blank line labeled “Print Name.”
