The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires Special Olympics Utah (SOUT) to keep records of donations of any kind to maintain our Not-For-Profit status. In addition, tracking in-kind donations helps to keep the cost of fundraising down, which qualifies SOUT for more corporate and foundation gifts. Special Olympics Utah will distribute an official letter to the donor acknowledging the donation for tax purposes. Delegations or other individuals are not authorized to issue a receipt of donation to any person or company. If available, please provide a letter of donation from the company/donor on their letterhead or a receipt demonstrating the actual value/amount of the donated items.
