Handling ContributionsAccurately tracking and managing contributions is a must for any nonprofit organization.
Charitable contribution deduction rules changed with the passing of the Pension Protection Act in 2006.
Before then, you could use your check registers or personal notations as documentation. Now all donations must have proof of the deductions.
As stated above that proof may be either a bank record or a donation receipt. A bank record for this record-keeping requirement include bank or credit union statements, canceled checks, or credit card statements.
They must show the date paid or posted, the name of the charity, and the amount of the payment.
