I have a logistical question… A couple of local ladies are putting on a fundraising event. The event is going to benefit two animal groups in the valley which both have non-profit statuses.
Now the ladies have no non-profit status. Yet since this event is for non-profits, any who donates to it should technically get a tax-receipt for their donation.
Right now I have all the donations going to one group’s PayPal button with the promise that the funds will be divvied in the end. I see some potential issues with that; people think their money is going to this event, but through PayPal it looks like it’s going to one group. The benefit is however, they will get a tax receipt for their records.
Does anyone know of any other way to collect money? I am thinking it all has to be tied to someone’s 501c3 Employer Identification Number to get the tax deduction for one, but otherwise it’s always tied to some sort of bank account (like one of the hosts’ bank accounts).
Ideas? I don’t think a donor can even write a check out to “This Fundraiser Event” because that doesn’t exist anywhere yet (at a bank, etc), just in concept!
