SENDING DONATIONS CHECKS TO AMAA
Do you or your donors need to send donation checks to the AMAA? Each check(s) mailed to the AMAA needs to be accompanied by a Fundraising Donation Form so we don't lose track of which runner receives credit for the donations mailed to the office. Print a copy of the Fundraising Donation Form and cut the document into thirds (there are three forms per page). A form should be attached to each check, or group of checks, mailed to the AMAA.
COLLECTING DONATIONS BY CHECK OR CASH
Are you collecting some donations by check or cash and want to provide receipts to your donors? Feel free to use the AMAA donation receipt. Print a copy of the Donation Receipt document and cut the it into thirds (there are three receipts per page). The receipts include the association's tax identification number and can be provided to donors for tax purposes (the tax id number is 52-0904288). Offline donations will be manually entered into your online fundraising account by the AMAA staff.
Checks should be written to the American Medical Athletic Association, or AMAA.
Offline donations should be mailed to:
AMAA YOUTH FITNESS FUND 2015
4405 East-West Highway, Suite 405
Bethesda, MD 20814
When receiving a matching donation toward your fundraising campaign, you must do the following:
• Provide a copy of the original donation made to your fundraising account (online or offline)
• Mail, fax, or scan/email your proof of a donation to ARA/AMAA (firstname.lastname@example.org)
and indicate that the donation is being submitted to x-corporation for a Matching Gift.
• Provide the name of the Fundraising Runner who will be receiving the Matching Gift, the
name of the donor, amount donated, date, and copy of the online receipt.
• OFFLINE DONATION CHECKS (intended for a Matching Gift) must be sent with a note stating
that the check is being submitted to x-corporation for a Matching Gift.
The AMAA staff will notify the Fundraising Runner when the Matching Gift arrives. Credit will only be made to the fundraising totals for a Fundraiser after the matching gift check arrives.
