A Church Donation Letter for Tax Purposes is a formal document that certifies a charitable donation from an individual or organization to a church and allows the donor to claim a tax deduction on their tax return. Whether it is common practice to provide a letter to any person or company that generously contributes to your church or you were asked for it specifically by a donor, this statement will confirm the amount of money or the value of the gift - if it is more than $250, the donor can be eligible for the tax deduction since it is possible to claim 100% of your donation to the religious institution as a deduction.
