Is my donation tax-deductible? Will I get a receipt with my donation?

If you have any questions about whether your donation is tax-deductible, please consult a tax professional or the nonprofit you donated to. Our mean lawyer makes us say that since everyone’s tax situation is so unique.

Tax Receipts...

You'll automatically receive an email receipt from CrowdRise that meets the IRS requirements for a record of your donation if you donated to a US charity. Be sure to save and/or print this email for your records.

Canadian organizations can opt to have CrowdRise send receipts or they may opt to send receipts themselves. If you donate to a Canadian charity and do not receive a receipt, you’ll want to contact them directly.

Our receipts will have all the information the US IRS or Canadian CRA requires for deductibility.

International Donations...

We encourage international donors to consult a tax professional with questions about the tax requirements outside of the US and Canada; as CrowdRise is not able to make tax-advisements.

Editing a Donation Receipt...

The personal information displayed on your donation receipt will match the billing info associated with the credit card used to process the donation. We’re unable to change this information (name, email, billing address, etc.) associated with a donation after it’s been processed. There are some complicated tax and security laws that prohibit this.

If you've made a donation on behalf of another person and want to obtain a receipt with their name, you'll need to contact the benefiting charity directly and request one. The charity can also give you a receipt for any offline donations submitted directly to their organization via check or cash.


You may also opt to refund the original donation and process it again using the corrected email address, etc.
