Are Donor Disclosure Rules Going to Change?
Posted by Bill Smith on Thu, Sep 26, 2019 @ 03:21 PM

Rules requiring certain not-for-profits to report the names and addresses of major donors will remain in place for the time being. A recent ruling from the U.S. District Court of Montana set aside and declared unlawful the Revenue Procedure that would have exempted some types of not-for-profits from the requirement to report the names of their major donors in their annual information filings.

2019 Outlook for Donations, Grants, and Endowments
Posted by Chrissy Hammond on Wed, Dec 19, 2018 @ 02:00 PM

Low unemployment, strong stock market performances, and increases in corporate profits made 2018 a stellar year for grant-making foundations and charitable trusts. The sector is primarily fueled by private contributions from individuals and corporations, investment returns, and capital asset gains, so when economic conditions are favorable, grant-makers do well, too. And when grant-makers do well, it benefits the not-for-profit organizations that rely on donations, grants, and endowments to support their programming efforts.

Substantiate, Substantiate, and Substantiate: A Friendly Reminder for Not-For-Profit Organizations and their Donors
Posted by Amy O’Loughlin on Tue, Aug 22, 2017 @ 06:06 PM

Donations to not-for-profit organizations are normally a win-win for organizations and their donors. Organizations receive gifts to help support their mission, and the donor receives a tax write-off. But not-for-profit organizations and donors must ensure they are in compliance with IRS substantiation requirements. The IRS requires that in order for a donor to take a deduction greater than $250, he or she must have a contemporaneous written acknowledgment (CWA) of the donation from the not-for-profit organization. CWAs must include the name of the organization, the value of the donation (if cash), a description of the donation (if non-cash), whether goods or services were provided in exchange for donation, and, if services were provided, a good faith estimate of the value of those services. If the value of the gift exceeds $5,000, in most cases, a qualified appraisal must be obtained in addition to the CWA.
