A Church Donation Receipt is a document that keeps a note of any donations gifted to a church. It is important to fill this receipt in correctly and state who donated the funds, what was donated and most importantly - the specific sum of the donation.
The reason for this is that many individuals who make such donations can use this document when submitting their taxes. This can be done because churches are legally exempted from taxes (in every state) and if an individual has made such a donation, they can subtract the donated sum from their overall yearly income. Without a Church Donation Receipt, this will be impossible to prove.
Of course, this only applies to larger donations; if you simply submit a small fee during a standard church service then you should not expect to receive a receipt. Receipts are only handed out to the bigger donations. Make sure that you request the receipt at a suitable time to ensure that the church has enough time to process, prepare and issue the receipt.
