Third Party Fundraising Charitable Tax Receipting Information
Please send all contributions and donor information to NECHV in a timely manner after the event. All information can be sent to:
New England Center and Home for Veterans
Attn: CJ Beck, Philanthropic Officer for Community Engagement
PO Box 961500
Boston, MA 02109
For cash donations, please provide NECHV with a list of names, mailing addresses, and phone numbers, as well as the amount of the gift that each individual receipted. For donations made by check, these must be made payable to New England Center and Home for Veterans or NECHV.
Credit Card Donations
Credit card donations must be processed directly by NECHV. For any donor wishing to make their gift with a credit card, please have them complete their donation at https://nechv.org/donations/online-giving, or contact Ivy Chang at 617-371-1797.
Receipts for Cash or Credit Card Donations
NECHV will issue donation receipts for any monetary donation made directly to NECHV. For individuals, the receipt will be issued in the name of that individual at their home address. If a corporation has made the donation, the receipt will be issued in the company name at their corporate address. Receipts are issued after the money is received and processed by NECHV.
Receipts for In-Kind Donations
Individuals or organizations who donate in-kind goods or services to support your event (i.e. raffle prizes that were donated to you by a local business) will receive a thank you letter documenting the in-kind gift received, though NECHV is not able to provide a tax receipt that includes the dollar value of the gift. In order for NECHV to acknowledge these contributions, you must provide the donor’s name and address as well as a description of what was donated.
Receipt Non-Eligible Items
Goods and services not eligible for a donation receipt include purchase of items such as raffle or lottery tickets, admission tickets, golf green fees, and the cost of donated services. This includes special services that necessitate hiring someone for the event (i.e. tent set-up, entertainment).
For fundraising events such as dinners, auctions, and golf tournaments, a tax receipt may be issued for the entry fee less the “cost per person to put on the event,” however, the cost amount cannot exceed 80% of the entry fee.
