Note: For Processors only.
Tax receipts are issued differently based on the payment method used for the donation. Tax receipts also vary per country.
For all credit card donations, Philanthropy Cloud automatically sends donation confirmation emails with tax receipts as PDF attachments.
For cash, check, and stock pledges, Philanthropy Cloud sends pledge confirmation emails. The processor follows up with payment information and issues tax receipts when the pledged donations are fulfilled.
For payroll pledges, donors can use the appropriate pay stubs as their tax receipts, since charitable deductions are indicated on their pay stubs.
You can create and preview your email messages. You can also send sample emails as required.
Important: You cannot process donations until your Stripe account is connected and your tax receipt emails are configured.
Important: Configuring tax receipt emails for credit card donations is required. Otherwise, donation functionality is disabled.
Important: Configuring payroll deduction, stock pledge, cash pledge, and check pledge confirmation emails is optional. However, if these emails are not configured, their corresponding donation options are not available to your customers, even if the payment methods are enabled.
To configure a tax receipt or a pledge confirmation email:
Navigate to Receipts and Confirmation Emails.
Select the appropriate tax receipt or pledge confirmation email to configure: Tax Receipt, Payroll Deduction, Stock Pledge, Cash Pledge, or Check Pledge.
Enable the payment method as required.
