GivingTrax supports both charitable donations and crowdsourcing fundraising. The 501(c)3 status of each entity is noted. GivingTrax vets nonprofit charities using the IRS database and requires the nonprofit member to attach their IRS Form W-9 and links to their tax returns. Nonprofits who are valid 501(c)3 are noted with a green checkmark. Your donation to a 501(c)3 charitable organization is generally tax deductible, however GivingTrax does not guarantee that it will be tax deductible. We encourage you to consult with a tax professional.
For credit card payments, GivingTrax provides an electronic receipt at the time of the donation. Both the receipt you see onscreen at the completion of the donation process and the email you receive shortly thereafter meet all IRS requirements as a record of donation. If you are asked to provide a paper receipt for IRS purposes, please print out a copy of your email receipt or send a request for a duplicate receipt. For Business Members who pay by means other than credit card, the recipient non-profit will post an electronic receipt directly.
