We issue receipts for donations made to AID in the US. We send email receipts to all donors who's email we have on record. We send paper receipts to donors who make a contribution of $75 or more. Currently, we send out paper receipts only once a year in January which lists donations made by a donor in the prior year. Both email receipts and paper receipts can be used to claim tax deductions.
For Credit Card transactions, email receipts will be issued within 5 days from the time the transaction was placed online.
For Checks, email receipts will be issued (if we have your email in our database) as soon as the transaction gets processed by the bank and we receive notification of the same. This could take any where from a few weeks to up to 2 months.
Consolidated paper receipts, which can be used to claim tax-deductions, for both credit card and check donations, are mailed out to our donors by the end of January each year for donations totaling $75 or more made in the previous year.
If a paper receipt is required before January, please make a request to our donor services team.
Please be sure to provide all the following details in the email, so that we can expedite processing/issuing your receipt.
For checks, include: check number, amount/s, full name, address, phone, email, date check was sent and address check was sent to.
For credit cards, include: amount/s, full name, address, phone, email, date transaction was made.

TMIA (This Month In AID) is an electronic monthly newsletter which will be emailed to you if you provide us with an email address.
If I have an urgent request or a problem related to my donation, is there a number where I can reach a member of the donor services team?
Yes, please email donor at aidindia.org or contact Naga at 919-452-7933. All services at AID are handled by volunteers and so please call in the evening/night.
We only accept directed donations to approved AID projects that are yet to be funded. And, we only accept funds upto the approved amount for the project. We believe this gives the donor an opportunity to engage with a project without compromising on our rigorous review process where we determine how much to fund a project based on merit, milestones etc. Please contact your local AID chapter to find out about approved projects that are yet to be funded.
Donations made to AID are tax-deductible in USA, under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
