We know how important it is to be able to manage your donations and issue tax receipts. If you need to issue one receipt for multiple donations, you can generate and issue cumulative receipts and ensure compliance with your jurisdiction's tax requirements.
Our Donations tools allow you to track donors, log donations, and manage tax receipts quickly and easily. When you use this tool, you can stay organized and better address donor management.
About Cumulative Donation Receipts
For donations made using Keela, tax receipts are generated automatically when you receive a donation online. This receipt is emailed to your donor and logged in your contact database.
Sometimes, however, you will log donations manually for donors who contribute using cash or cheque and some of those donors may additionally ask for cumulative donation receipts.
A cumulative donation receipt is a charitable tax receipt issued for more than one monetary donation made in a calendar year. It may include some or all of the donations made during that time.
With our cumulative receipt tool, you can create and issue receipts to your donors with only a few clicks.
Cumulative Donation Receipt Features
When creating a cumulative donation receipt, there are a few things to keep in mind:
a) Cumulative receipts can only be issued on manually recorded donations that do not have an existing issued receipt. Learn more about logging a donation.
b) Donations must be monetary; cumulative receipts cannot be issued on in-kind or securities donations.
c) Donations need to be from the same calendar year. Cumulative donation receipts cannot span more than one year.
d) Donors must have an address recorded in their contact profile within Keela.
e) Cumulative receipts should only be issued on donations of the same currency.
