Refund Policy:

RESCINDING GIFTS - A gift is by definition an irrevocable transfer of property or money and the Foundation issues a gift receipt for all contributions. These receipts represent the documentation required by the IRS to claim a charitable deduction for income tax purposes. Therefore, in the rare instance in which a donor’s gift is returned, the Foundation will do the following:

  1. Request that the donor return the original gift receipt (this would generally be most appropriate when the gift is returned within the same calendar/tax year).
  2. Issue a 1099 identifying the payment as a source of income (this action would be taken only if the donor failed to return the original gift receipt or if the contribution(s) were made in previous calendar/tax years during which the donor would have already claimed the charitable deduction).
