Guidelines for Special Fundraising Campaigns

August 13, 2003 KCC sangha members interested in implementing an idea for a capital campaign special fundraising project should contact Adele Hilsen. She will assist in giving the project a name and getting it on KCC's "radar". Adele can be contacted by email, or phone. Phone: 503 646-6428 email:  cahilsen at comcast.net

Although currently donations are not tracked by special campaign in KCC's Accounting System, donors should be encouraged to put the name of the project on their check, donation envelope, or credit card form. If the Development Committee or event soordinators are interested in how much a project raised, this information could be entered into the Capital Campaign's donation database.

All donations to KCC are tax deductible Please tell all donors that KCC is a 501(c)3 corporation and their donations may be tax deductible. If the person from whom you are receiving the donation would like an IRS approved acknowledgment of their donation(s) at year-end, make sure they include their name and address, along with the amount of the donation. This is usually only a problem with cash donations, as long as correct addresses accompany checks & credit card transactions. Donations can be made by check, cash or credit card.

Use of Donor Names Donors should be aware that their names will be used in acknowledging their gifts on the KCC bulletin board and possibly through other means. If they want their gift to be anonymous, they need to indicate that clearly on the donation form or in a note. They will still need to include their name and address in order to receive an IRS approved acknowledgment of their donation.
