The WDA Foundation will provide a tax receipt only for those donations that meet IRS standards. If the donation is in the form of a check or money order it must be made payable to the Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation or WDA Foundation. Credit card donations must be made directly to the foundation. Legally, we cannot provide gift acknowledgements to participants of the event who have made gifts to you or any other organization. (Example: You are charging a fee for an event. A participant pays with a check that is made out to you or your company/dental office. You cash the check and then make out a new check to the WDA Foundation. This is technically NOT a donation to the WDA Foundation by the participant, but rather a payment to you. Therefore, the foundation cannot provide a tax receipt.)
