Receipt question

  • 1.  Receipt question

    Posted 12-17-2019 09:17 AM

    We had an event over the weekend which included tickets to a show and lunch.  A donor who could not attend the event at the last minute called and requested her receipt be changed, showing the full amount of what she paid as a donation not deducting the goods received.  Is this something we could do??  The tickets and the food was already paid for by us.

    Thank you for your help!

    Once the benefit is accepted that is pretty much the end of the story.  Whether they use the benefit is not important.  If, however, it was something you could turn around and reuse - like tickets to an athletic event - they could make a GIK donation of those.
