This special message about the need for donations:

All donations made to CMMS Deshae Lott Ministries Inc are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law for 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. We have 501(c)(3) status, particularly 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) status, and operate as a non-profit charity.  Donations, bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts [under sections 170, 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the tax code] are tax-deductible. This is detailed in a letter from the IRS dated August 29, 2007.

At the time of any non-anonymous contribution, an email notification of receipt or a letter notification of receipt will be sent to individuals. Donors should keep that for their records.

Cancelled checks showing the name of the organization [CMMS Deshae Lott Ministries Inc], the date of the contribution, and the amount of the contribution also function as donor substantiation for income tax purposes. For donations under $250, the donor's cancelled check is sufficient evidence for IRS purposes. End of year tax receipts are sent to every individual donor of more than $250. We will, however, send a tax receipt to any donor who requests one.

Donated property is also tax-deductible. Donors are responsible for the valuation of donated property but must provide a sufficient description to support the donor's contribution; the organization will keep a record of this, as must the individual claiming a tax deduction for it.
