How to Make a Donation in Someone’s Name/Event

We are a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue organization # and all donations are tax deductible as per IRS guidelines. When you make a donation in someone’s name, we will
A) send you a Letter of Acknowledgment for your tax purposes.
B) send a card (please provide email and mailing address of the person you’re honoring) to the person you’re honoring stating that you have made a donation in their name/cause/event.
