If you’re writing and mailing a silent auction donation letter, you’ll want to include your charity’s 501(c)(3) number (also called a Tax ID number) on the letters and/or forms. It will speed up the donation process.
Some volunteers aren’t sure what their charity’s number is. In this video, you’ll be shown how to look it up on an internet-based database.

Great info Sherry. I hope that folks understand how important it is to keep important documents and information organized.
Thanks for talking about how to find your Nonprofit 501 c 3 number! I do think it’s important to put in your auction item thank you letters. People should be able to write off what they donate as easily as possible.
Thanks for sharing your process!
