    Donation Receipt?

    rochellelouks Newbie

      If I give a donation to a nonprofit organization, is that organization required by law to send me a donation receipt?

          Hi Rochellelouks,

           

          They are not required by law unless the donation is over a certain amount (I believe it is $250 dollars). If you have donated less than $250 dollars your cancelled check is sufficient to include in your income taxes.   Reputable charities will ask if you would like a receipt regardless of the amount of the donation.
