Cash Recognition Donation Policy

It is the donor’s responsibility to deduct charitable contributions. They must itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040) or Schedule A (Form 1040NR). Herobox will provide notes with the appropriate information included that maintain the organizations records.

In-Kind Donation Policy

Herobox relies on generous donations from private citizens and businesses to continue to our work.  Herobox will adhere to all IRS regulations in regards to the recognition, valuation, and reporting of in-kind donations.
"In-kind giving" refers to contributions of goods and services that are of value to a nonprofit organization.
“Fair market value (FMV) is the price that property would sell for on the open market. It is the price that would be agreed on between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with neither being required to act, and both having knowledge of the relevant facts.”[1] IRS Publication 561 ( explains how to determine the fair market value of your donation.

Appraisals are not necessary for items of property for which you claim a deduction of $5,000 or less. (There is one exception, described in IRS Publication 561 on page 9.) However, you generally will need an appraisal for donated property for which you claim a deduction of more than $5,000. There are exceptions described in IRS Publication 561 on page 9-11.  (

As the IRS states, not every in-kind donation is tax-deductible. Donated services, although often welcomed by donors, generally cannot be written off. IRS Publication 526 ( outlines what types of donations can be deducted and how to claim a deduction.

It is the donors responsibility to deduct charitable contributions and list them on their tax return at their FMV. They must itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040) or Schedule A (Form 1040NR). It is the responsibility of the donor when donating goods worth over $5,000 to obtain an appraisal. If the claimed deduction for an item donated property is more than $5,000, you must attach Form 8283 to your tax return and complete Section B.[2] 

The information above is not legal or tax advice to donors, rather Herobox acknowledging that the organization will follow all IRS guidelines pertaining to in-kind charitable contributions.
