What is a Donor Agreement?
A donor agreement is a contract between a nonprofit and a donor. It outlines the donation terms, such as how much money will be given and what goods or services will be provided. The nonprofit should have an attorney review the document before signing it with any donors.
A donor agreement explains the specifics of a donation to a charity. It includes how much a donor plans to pledge and what benefits the nonprofit will get when accepting the donor’s pledge.
