In-Kind Donations

BraveHearts will provide a donation acknowledgement letter for all in-kind donations with a description of the item(s) donated.  For non-cash or in-kind donations, BraveHearts will not place a value on the item(s) donated and therefore will not include an amount in the letter.  It is the donor’s responsibility to determine the value of items donated.  Please be aware that as a general rule, in order to take a deduction for items donated that have a value greater than $5,000 an IRS form 8283 must be filed with your tax return and an appraisal prepared by a certified appraiser attached.   If you are preparing a form 8283 and need a signature, please send the form and a copy of the appraisal to Meggan Hill-McQueeney at meggan@braveheartsriding.org

    Cash Donations

    BraveHearts will provide a donation acknowledgement letter for all cash donations specifying the amount of the donation(s).  This letter will also include a statement about whether you received any goods or services from BraveHearts in exchange for the donation(s), including the value of any such goods or services. 

    If you have any questions regarding the deductibility of your donation and the documentation required we strongly encourage you to contact a tax professional.

      “I am so grateful to have my husband back and to feel like a family again. I can not help but think of all the spouses and children around the country that could be helped from this great program. My husband has always meant the world to me and it is only because of Operation Mustang that he has truly come home. Thank you so much for all you have done for my family.”
