Response to tax receipt request


English

Dear $DONORNAME,

Thank you for helping to give children a better education with your laptops.

As you may know, Labdoo runs as a distributed / humanitarian social network platform. The donation process propagates from one volunteer to the next, until the laptop reaches its school destination. Our system provides a communication platform for all the volunteers involved across more than 100 nations and financial boundaries. Thanks to our collaborative approach, Labdoo does not need monetary donations to sustain itself. Our no money approach implies also that there is no chance for financial corruptions. With over $CURRENT_NUMBER_OF_LABDOO_LAPTOPS laptops delivered to $CURRENT_NUMBER_LABDOO_SCHOOLS different schools, this model demonstrates the efficacy of running an organization just through collaboration and without the need for funding.

According to the IRS, the burden of proof for non-cash donations to non-profit organizations is on the donor. The IRS states that if an item is valued less than $5000, the donor can fill out IRS tax form 8283 (f8283) by themselves without any input or receipt from the laptop recipient school. Since the residual value of a used laptop is lower that this amount, the recipient school is not required to provide proof for donors.

Because of the above reason, Labdoo does not issue tax receipts. By registering your laptops in the Labdoo system, you can be assured that the working laptops are properly delivered via the platform-generated email notification that you receive from the recipient schools, which you can use as a proof of your donation to that school . You will receive email notifications on the status of broken laptops too as they make their way to the recycling facility.

Thanks for your understanding and for your joint effort on making the Labdoo system transparent and efficient.

Best regards,
