Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I make a donation in honor/memory of someone?
Simply write "In Honor of (Person's Name)" or "In Memory of (Person's Name)" on the memo line of your check. Our office is happy to send a letter of acknowledgement to the person or their family members if you provide us address information. We do not always have a current address on file for memorial gifts. If the family has designated a particular program for your gifts we will make sure your funds are applied per their request.
How do I get a tax receipt for my donation?
We mail letters to all of our donors (both cash and items for resale) soon after the donation is received that included our tax ID#. You should keep this letter for your files. In January we mail a letter to all cash donors with a listing of every cash donation they made in the previous year that they can take to their tax professional. If you lose your receipt letter(s) call our office and we will be happy to help you. 501.776.0691.
Is my gift tax-deductable?
Yes. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization your donations are tax-deductable to the full extent of the law. You should always consult your tax professional about any claim you make. Please keep the donation receipt letters that we mail.
