Donate Services???

Post by rubyzcreationz on Tue Jul 23, 2013 12:24 pm

I would love to be able to do this for the young girl. It touches my heart:heart: However I do not know how to run my business as a donation for an event. Any help would be appreciated. I also fear of the loss of pay since I barely started. Any thoughts to get my straight?

Here is the email I just received:

"Good morning,

I am in need of a face painter that is willing to donate his or her services as we celebrate the 11th birthday of a young girl battling cancer.

Junior Foundation, an organization that helps families who have a child diagnosed with cancer is making this wish come true for Marleny who is currently battling cancer.

The "Miss Marleny" birthday party is this SATURDAY, July 27 beginning at 2pm in the city of FONTANA.

If you are willing to donate your services please contact us. All donations are tax deductible and we could provide you with a receipt for tax purposes.

Thank you,
Jessica Avila"

If I cannot do it and someone near me would like to take it. Please PM me and I will give you the contact information.

I would love too, but I'm to far away! My business is the fundraiser for my sons cancer foundation. I donate to the local hospital for the cancer kids anytime I have a chance. I wish I was closer!

Donations of time and services are not tax deductible. Not everyone who seems to have a good cause is on the up and up. Be careful.

I think a way around it is to collect the money and then donate the money and getting a receipt for that donation. I read somewhere else too you cannot donate services and claim it back in your returns.

Oh wow thanks for that info. I didn't even think about that. Thanks for the eye owner.

That's how i feel donations should be with getting the money and giving all our half to the cause.

Never knew how to handle charities. Thanks for the look out to be wary.
