Quid Pro Quo - Disclosure Statement: The IRS states that: A contribution made by a donor in exchange for a good or service is considered Quid Pro Quo. If the contribution exceeds $75 it is the nonprofit's responsibility to disclose the good faith market value of the good or service to the donor so they can subtract it from their deduction. The IRS states that donors can only claim the deduction above the value of the good or service. For Example: Sally donates $100 to a car wash, and the fair market value for the car wash was $15. Sally can write off $85 of her donation. Billy gave $100 at the car wash fundraiser but did not need his car washed so did not receive services. Billy can deduct the full $100 on his tax returns.

Reimbursement Policy: Volunteers and visitors will not be reimbursed for time, expenses, or damages. Volunteers however can write off some of these things in their tax returns. If your estimated unreimbursed contributions exceeds $250 of value, we can send you a donation receipt. If it does not, or if you are not sure the value, but would still like a receipt for your taxes and records, please email us at Legal@oaksranch.org and specify that you would like to receive a donation receipt for your unreinbursed expenses. Please provide the event(s) served and expenses (Such as travel expenses, equipment, clothing, etc) so we can consider it in your receipt. Volunteer hours and services provided cannot be deducted.

NOTE: This Policy allows volunteers to write off their expenses on their personal taxes as a charitable contribution when the value of services offered exceeds $250. It should also be noted that while our volunteers and supporters are invaluable, with worth beyond the monetary spectrum, we will do our best to help you get some solid write offs!
