The Foundation will send a letter of acknowledgement and thank you to the donor with the accompanying IRS Form 8283. The donor may use this form when preparing their taxes. If a vehicle is donated, the donor will also receive IRS Form 1098-C from the Foundation at the end of the year.


The Foundation will provide assistance to the department as needed to carry out the intentions of the donor.


The Foundation will provide the appropriate recognition in the form of a press release or other actions consistent with the value of the donation.


The Estimated Fair Market Value (FMV) is vital information. LSTC does not offer appraisal of the FMV of In-Kind Donations and United States Tax Codes place the responsibility on the donor to obtain the appraised value for their tax form 8283. The estimate provided is to give us an estimate of the value for inventory purposes.


All information must be completed in order to provide the Foundation with accurate accountability for all donations.

If the in-kind donation has a title you must get the title prior to or when you accept the donation.
