Because your donors might not only be in your own country but around the world, we've created international partnerships to provide your international donors with full tax-deductible receipts when they donate to your organization.
We have international partnerships in the U.S., Canada, U.K., the European Union, and Australia, which provide tax-receipts in donors in 32 countries.
Each international partner has an application process that you're required to complete in order to receive donations through it.
Receiving donations before you've received approval
Note that you can add a donation to your donation forms - and receive donations - in international currencies, even before you've completed the application process with an international partner. In this case, the following things will happen:
The donor will receive a full tax-receipt
You will receive an email informing you that you've received a donation even though you haven't been approved to receive donations in that currency.
You'll see in your donation records that a donation has been made of a particular sum and on a particular date, but you won't be able to see the donor's details.
You'll have 6 months from the moment that the donation is made to fulfill our international partner's requirements and obtain eligibility to fundraise with them.
If you do, the funds will be released to you (less a supplemental 2.5% fee) and the donor's details will appear fully in your account.
If you don't, the donation will be refunded back to the donor, or re-allocated to a different cause.
