Does the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) require these statements every year?
According to the IRS Pub 1771:

However, the IRS does require you as a charity organization to provide a written disclosure to a donor who receives goods or services in exchange for a single payment in excess of $75. You can click on the link above to access and download the complete IRS publication on this subject matter.

The deadline for issuing these receipts or statements to your donors is January 31st or at the very latest before they do their tax return. Your donation receipts or letters can be issued gift-by-gift, monthly, quarterly, annually or any other frequency just depends on what your church wants to do. However, always record this frequency in your church policy and procedure manual.
