Regarding Gift Receipting:
Though IRS standards require not for profit organizations to provide contribution receipts for gifts of $250 or more, the American Brain Tumor Association provides receipts for gifts of $100 or more. In cases of gifts made below that threshold, you may use your check or bank statement for proof. Should you wish to receive a hard copy receipt of your gift under $100, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. For online donations, gifts of any amount will be receipted immediately upon confirmation via the provided email address.
*Please note, for online donations your gift will appear as "American Brain Tumor Association" on your credit card statement.
Regarding Donation Designations:
Most donations received by the ABTA are placed in a general fund, which enables funds to be directed toward our mission-based programs, services and high-quality research projects. When you do not restrict the use of your gift, you give our organization the flexibility to meet changing or urgent needs such as new patient and caregiver services as well as funding promising new research initiatives. Should you wish to restrict your gift of $250 or more, please contact us at email@example.com.
While the ABTA takes great care to fulfill a donor’s restriction wishes, there are times when we are unable to meet the request due to the nature of the restriction or the organization's current operations. In such cases, the ABTA makes all reasonable efforts to contact the donor and discuss alternative options for the gift. After 30 days past the notification date, the ABTA reserves the right to utilize gifts in a manner that best correlates with the donor’s intent and ABTA’s needs and that upholds our fiduciary responsibility as a non-profit organization.
