Here are a series of questions that I’m sure more than one of you has had. I thought it would be helpful to post the questions and answers.
We got 69 blankets. I only have tax receipts for 26 of them. The other people didn’t want receipts and I donated some that I still need to write receipts for. Do I just sign for my own blankets? That seems weird. But ok.
Then, What do I do about the people that don’t want receipts filled out. Just fill them out without a name?
How about this one…I got a donation of fabric, 50 yards. That values at $300 according to the garage sale values page. The manual says to write a letter to the person. I gave her a tax receipt already and can send out a letter, but what should it say?
I also have purchased at least 100 yards of fabric because I was worried that nobody would have fabric and people would want to help and there would be nothing to help with. How do I go about writing that off? Or, should I just hold some back until we need more fabric? I had several volunteers take some fabric and yarn that was donated, but not that much. I also got a lot of yarn donated, but they didnt’ want receipts either.
When people make blankets out of the donated stuff, I understand that they don’t get a tax receipt, but how am I supposed to keep track of who took what and made what with what. Confused? I sure am.
I also read somewhere that you want a list of volunteers and addresses correct? SOme people wanted to be annonymous. Is that ok too?
I’m sure I will have more questions for you.
oh, yeah, when I give the blankets, I am supposed to get a tax receipt too correct? What if I donate some place and they say they are going to send me a receipt and then they never do?
