Charitable Gift Receipt (Quid Pro Quo)
The Charitable Gift Receipt (Quid Pro Quo) is available free below to download, customize and print for your church administrative office, Human Resources Dept., etc.
What is a Quid Pro Quo contribution?
A Quid Pro Quo contribution is a payment made to an organization and/or charity by a donor partly as a contribution to the organization and partly for goods or services provided to the donor by the organization and/or charity.
The charitable organization that accepts the Quid Pro Quo donation will have to provide a written statement or receipt to the donors if the contribution was in excess of $75. Here is an example of a Quid Pro Quo contribution:
- A donor gives an organization and/or charity $100 and receives a Gospel Singing Concert ticket valued at $30, the donor has made a Quid Pro Quo contribution.
In this example the charitable contribution part of the payment is $70.
All printable receipts for contributions should be numbered for accounting and control purposes.
The Quid Pro Quo receipt below includes:
- Receipt Number
- Name of receipt
- Receipt Statement Example -
Dear [Donor’s Name],
Thank you for your cash contribution of $75 received
on [Date] at our Valentine’s Celebration Fundraiser. In return for your gift, we provided you with a dinner with a good faith estimate value of $25.
You may have also received intangible benefits, but these benefits do not need
to be valued for tax purposes.
portion of your contribution for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of your contribution over the value of goods and services we provided to you. The $25.00
value of benefits you received must be subtracted from your
$75.00 contribution, so your actual charitable contribution is $50.00.
This document is necessary for any income tax deduction for your contribution.
Please retain it for your records.
- Receipt Issued on [Date]
- Receipt Issued by [Name], Treasurer
- Church Name and Address
From a public's point of view, you do not want your donors attempting to deduct a contribution only to have the IRS deny their deduction. I would recommend that you indicate in some way on all your tickets and/or special event invitations how much of the ticket price is tax deductible, even on the tickets that are priced under $75.
