Tax Receipts

If I give monthly, when will I receive my tax receipt?
A consolidated tax receipt, representing your contributions over the whole of the prior year, will be mailed to you early in the following year in time for tax season. We do not send receipts for donations under $20 unless specifically requested.

What is an electronic tax receipt (e-receipt)? How do I use it?
When you make your online donation to BGCC, an electronic tax receipt will be delivered instantly to your email inbox. The electronic receipt is in an unalterable format, and is your official receipt for income tax purposes. Simply print out the receipt and include a copy with your income tax return.

When will I receive my receipt in the mail?
BGCC typically issues receipts roughly seven to 10 days from the time the donation arrives for processing. For donors enrolled in our pre-authorized monthly giving plan, receipts are sent out once a year in mid February— in time for tax season. Sending a consolidated annual tax receipt adds efficiency in record keeping and helps us to save on administrative costs.
