This new law will require charitable organizations to clearly indicate on donor receipts the contributions received for Haiti relief efforts. Additionally, the contributions for Haiti relief efforts will need to be separately stated on any cumulative or year end receipts issued at the close of 2010.
As a reminder, all contributions of $250 or more are required to be documented with a qualifying receipt including the following:
- the date the receipt is issued
- the name and address of the donor
- a listing of the charitable contributions
- a statement indicating that no goods or services were given in exchange for the contribuitons
