Church Donation Receipt

By Cheryl Cirelli Non Profit Management Specialist

Be sure to ask for a church donation receipt for any contributions that you make. This receipt is needed when you begin preparing your taxes.

About Church Donations

Many people make weekly, monthly or annual donations to their church. In return, the church often sends a statement detailing your contribution amounts. If you are a member of a church, there should be a record on file of your giving history. Often there are special campaigns that exist to increase donations; this gift would also warrant a receipt. Keep track of your giving throughout the year so you can be sure to get credit for the donations you have given when caclulating tax deductions.

Donations to churches often go towards general operating expenses, mission work, building costs and improvements and to help those in need. There may be a special appeal that the church is having to fund a specific project as well. Whatever the reason, donations are essential for any organization.

Asking for a Receipt

If you do not receive a letter thanking you for your donation or a year-end tax receipt, it is perfectly acceptable to ask for one. You can call the church office and let them know you need a receipt for taxes and have not received one yet. You may want to mention how much you have given and the dates of your donations.

Church Donation Receipt Information

A receipt for your church donation must include the following information:

  • Name of the church
  • Donor’s name and address
  • Date of donation
  • Amount of donation

If there were any in-kind gifts made to the church or services provided, this may be mentioned on the receipt as well.

When To Send

A receipt can be in the form of a thank you letter and sent immediately following the donation. It can also be in the form of a postcard or even an email.

Some churches issue receipts on an annual basis. This is usually done by the end of January each year in order to give donors a record for their taxes. This may be in the form of a statement rather than a thank you letter.

Sample Church Donation Receipts

Since there is not a specific form to use a donation receipt, many churches create their own letter or statement to be used as proof of receiving a donation. If you are the person responsible for generating receipts, consider using one of the following samples.

General Donation Thank You Letter Receipt

Name of Church would like to thank you for your generous gift of $ Amount, made on Date.

Our church relies on the generosity of donors such as you to survive and flourish. We again thank you for your gift and send you God’s blessings.

Signature of Authorized Church Official

Donation Receipt for Tax Purposes

To be printed on church letterheadDonor’s name

Date of Donation

Amount of Donation

Type of Donation: cash, check, credit card, service or goods

With this gift, you did not receive any goods or services in exchange for your donation other than religious benefits. (A version of this statement is required on all statements for tax purposes.)

Thank you for your generous support of Name of Church.

Final Thoughts

Donations are the lifeblood of many churches. Individuals can support their local church and in exchange get a receipt to use for their taxes. Since donations made to churches and non-profit organizations are tax-deductible, you will get an added benefit other than feeling good knowing you are supporting a worthy cause.

    The Australian Charities Fund – Workplace Giving #clothing #donation #drop #off

    What’s Happening

    • Program to celebrate Australian employee’s generosity
    • Dr Andrew Young, CEO, Centre for Social Impact, to chair Awards judging
    • Entries now open!

    Australian workers are generous. In FY2015 each Workplace Giving employee donated $262 to charity direct from their pay [1]. A new national Workplace Giving Excellence Awards event has been announced to celebrate and recognise this generosity.

    There are categories for both established programs, as well as those new to Workplace Giving:

    • Best Overall Program
    • Best Program Launch or Refresh (small employers)
    • Best Program Launch or Refresh (large employers)
    • Best Public Sector Program
    • Most Innovative Employer / Charity Partnership – to be nominated by the Charity

    Entries are open until 30 September at www.1MDonors.org.au

    “We are calling on all employers who offer Workplace Giving to enter the Awards and recognise the generosity of their teams. The power of Workplace Giving lies in its collective impact and we encourage organisations with successful and new programs to enter the Awards,” said Jenny Geddes, CEO of The Australian Charities Fund (ACF).

    New figures released by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) reveal that 162,500 Australians together donated $42.5 million to charity through Workplace Giving in FY2015. When employer donation matching is added it is anticipated the figure would exceed over $63 million [3]. ACF research shows that when employees donate through the workplace it is typically in addition to what they already give, so this figure represents new funding for the community[2] .

    The Awards judging panel will be chaired by Dr. Andrew Young, CEO of the Centre for Social Impact (CSI).

    “I am delighted to be involved in the 2016 Workplace Giving Excellence Awards,” said Dr Young.

    “Workplace Giving is a great way for working Australians to help create a stronger society by providing regular, reliable funding that charities so vitally need. Workplace Giving is perhaps the most efficient and tax-effective way to donate, and enables charities to focus on what they do best – delivering services.

    “I’m looking forward to learning how employers across Australia are harnessing the power of Workplace Giving to deliver great outcomes.”

    The Awards are part of the One Million Donors campaign to see a million working Australians donating to charity through their pay by 2020. Spearheaded by ACF and launched by The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull, MP, in 2014, the campaign is now in its third year and supported by leading employers, charities and community organisations.

    While Workplace Giving has obvious benefits for charities, it is also a useful tool for business.

    “Many leading employers put Workplace Giving at the heart of their internal engagement programs, which has proven to have a great impact on their people and culture, and ultimately their business. It’s a highly effective way to unify a workforce around a common goal and a powerful tool for bringing organisational values to life,” added Ms Geddes.

    “We look forward to celebrating Workplace Giving success stories, and inspiring more employers and their staff to get involved in this wonderful form of giving.”

    All employers with a Workplace Giving program are encouraged to enter the Awards. Entries open until 30 September at www.1MDonors.org.au

    Key Dates
    • Entries open: 1 August
    • Entries close: 30 September (5pm AEST)
    • Finalists announced: October
    • Awards event: 16 November
