We issue receipts for donations made to AID in the US. We send email receipts to all donors who's email we have on record. We send paper receipts to donors who make a contribution of $75 or more. Currently, we send out paper receipts only once a year in January which lists donations made by a donor in the prior year. Both email receipts and paper receipts can be used to claim tax deductions.
For Credit Card transactions, email receipts will be issued within 5 days from the time the transaction was placed online.
For Checks, email receipts will be issued (if we have your email in our database) as soon as the transaction gets processed by the bank and we receive notification of the same. This could take any where from a few weeks to up to 2 months.
Consolidated paper receipts, which can be used to claim tax-deductions, for both credit card and check donations, are mailed out to our donors by the end of January each year for donations totaling $75 or more made in the previous year.
If a paper receipt is required before January, please make a request to our donor services team.
Please be sure to provide all the following details in the email, so that we can expedite processing/issuing your receipt.
For checks, include: check number, amount/s, full name, address, phone, email, date check was sent and address check was sent to.
For credit cards, include: amount/s, full name, address, phone, email, date transaction was made.
Do you have any channel by which I will regularly be informed about AID's activities?
When you make a donation to AID, you will be added to our Dishaa and TMIA mailing lists automatically.
Dishaa is a quarterly print edition of our newsletter highlighting our projects and activities in India and the US.
AID Boston donors also get emails and mailings. We have an annual donor dinner event in the Fall where we invite all our donors to learn about our work over the past year along with a featured highlighted speaker from ndia.
If I have an urgent request or a problem related to my donation, is there a number where I can reach a member of the donor services team?
Yes, please email donor at aidindia.org or contact Naga at 919-452-7933. All services at AID are handled by volunteers and so please call in the evening/night.
