What is a Donation Agreement?

A donation agreement, also called a charitable gift agreement, is a document that established proof of a donation or gift to a charitable organization. It is an important record for both the charitable organization (the receiver) and the person or entity donating (the donor) because it supports internal record-keeping and aids with tax preparation.

A donation agreement will include the names of the parties, a description of the donation, whether a receipt that was given, and possibly the intended use for the donation. The agreement should also include a revocability (whether the donation can be taken back) section and define expense responsibility.
