    It depends on what type of donation the donor is giving. In accordance with IRS regulations, if someone makes a cash donation and the amount is $250 or more then the organization must provide a written receipt to the donor that states the following:
    1. The name of the organization and the date the donation was received
    2. The amount of the cash contribution
    3. A statement that no goods or services were provided by the organization in return for the contribution.

    If the donor makes a non-cash donation of goods worth $250 or more than the organization must provide the donor with a written acknowledgement of the donation that contains the following information:
    1. The name of the organization and the date the donation was received
    2. A statement that no goods or services were provided by the organization in return for the contribution
    3. A description of the non-cash goods received (the organization should not provide a value)

    If the donor makes a cash or non-cash donation and received something in value back from the organization worth more than $75 then the organization must provide the following written information:
    1. The name of the organization and the date the donation was received
    2. The amount of the cash or a description of the non-cash goods received
    3. A description and good faith estimate of the value of goods or services, if any, that an organization provided in return for the contribution.
