Do I need a receipt for non-cash donations, such as clothing or other property?
Donations valued between $1-250 require a receipt from the charity unless it is impractical to get one - like if you dropped clothing off in a bin or unmanned drop-off location. Donations between $251-500 require a receipt from the charity with the name, address, date, location and items. Donations between $501-5,000 also require a record of how and when the items were acquired and their adjusted basis. Donations valued over $5,000 may also require a written appraisal.
