Gifting and Receipting


In this module you will learn the basics of receipting.

Questions such as what is a gift (donation) and who can be issued an official donation receipt? will be answered.

You can also study a variety of sample receipts to see what must be included on a receipt, plus learn how long your charity must keep copies of its records. Electronic receipts and other general issues around books and records are also examined.
