We are making a donation to a dog rescue instead of favors. I am giving every guest a card with more information about the organization, why it is important to us, and a sponsor sticker. Is it appropriate to tell my guests how much we donated or can I leave this out?

Definitely leave it out. Its unnecessary (but I love donation cards…we are doing donation cards as well).

If you want, you can tell them “A donation has been made in your name for X anmount. If you would like more information, or to contribute more to this wonderful charity, you may contact them at (phone number/website, whatever)”
Though it is not necessary to let them know the amount, I don’t think it is bad if you do.

We did donation favors and left how much we donated out. However, it should be fine regardless. 🙂

I’d leave it out. There’s no need for anyone to know this information. As a guest, the amount wouldn’t really matter to me.

I’m doing the same and leaving it out. If they ask, you can always tell them.

Definitely leave it out. It’s not about the amount. It’s about helping a charity. I don’t think anyone would care or ask if you left it out.

I’m with the consensus. Leaving it out is best. They would appreciate that you are going to do something better with your money – even if it’s a dollar or two per person. If anyone asks, tell them “a lot.”
