Will I get a receipt?
Yes. After you donate, you will receive an email acknowledging your donation. This can serve as your tax receipt.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes. All donations made for Valley Gives are tax deductible.
Can you explain the role of The K Foundation since I'm donating to a local group and Valley Gives is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts?
When you select a local organization to donate to, your donation is actually being made to The K Foundation, a partner of Kimbia (which operates this online platform). The K Foundation will then make donation to the organization you designated on your behalf. The Community Foundation has no direct role in the donation process; rather it pays the many prizes won during Valley GIves and pays for the Kimbia platform so Valley Gives can operate.
What will be listed on my credit card statement for this donation?
On your credit card statement, K CHARITABLE DONATION SAN ANTONIO TX will be listed. The K Foundation (TKF) is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 public charity whose charitable purpose is to encourage the increase of philanthropy among people of all means by facilitating online donations for charitable purposes. TKF works with technology partner, Kimbia Inc., to handle the transacting and processing of funds donated through the FCGives.org website. All donations are subject to The K Foundation terms for online donations found at http://thekfoundation.org/general-terms-for-online-donations.html.
