  • The Ryan Blaney Family Foundation is a Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, EIN # 83-0955974. All donations are deemed tax-deductible absent any limitations on deductibility applicable to a particular taxpayer. No goods or services were provided in exchange for your contribution. To learn more about The Ryan Blaney Family Foundation’s mission, programs, and successes, visit http://ryanblaney.com/.

Additionally, it is important to provide an Acknowledgement Letter to donors for their donation. The Acknowledgment Letter is required for donors who donate more than $250. I have included a sample Acknowledgment Letter for cash donations below for your reference.

  • Donation Acknowledgments:
    • The IRS has denied tax deductions to donors who did not have the proper acknowledgement from nonprofits. As such, including an acknowledgement is important to ensure donors are able to receive their tax deductions.
    • Donation Acknowledgements are only required for donors who gift more than $250. Acknowledging each donation gives you an additional opportunity to show your gratitude to donors. It also serves as immediate confirmation. At the same time, the year-end acknowledgment letter is an excellent opportunity to summarize your donor’s giving and highlight what it helped accomplish.

    • Dear [DONOR NAME],
