Do I need a receipt for donations I make?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) doesn't require receipts for cash donations under $250, but you should keep your donation information on file. You can use Network for Good's Giving System to keep track of this donation information by setting up a Profile; every time you make a donation through Network for Good, it will be recorded in your Profile for future reference, such as tax preparation.

Cash contributions of $250 and over require a donation receipt. You do not need to send the acknowledgement to the IRS with your tax return, but you must keep it in your records in case the IRS requests it. The receipt must record the donation amount, the date the donation was made, and the name of the charity.

When you use Network for Good to process your donation, Network for Good provides you with an electronic receipt at the time of the donation. Both the receipt you see onscreen at the completion of the donation process, and the e-mail you receive shortly thereafter, meet all the IRS requirements as a record of donation. If you are asked to provide a paper receipt for IRS purposes, please send a request to
