I'm hosting a fundraiser for my campaign. What is the best way to collect donations in-person?

Updated on

The best way to collect tax-deductible donations at the fundraising event is to have a computer on hand where people can donate online. You can also text to the link to each person to have them donate via their phones.

We can also accept tax-deductible check donations on behalf of your campaign. Donors would need to make the check out to "ioby" with "[Your Campaign Name]" listed on the memo line. If they'd like to receive a tax-deductible receipt, they'll need to also include a note with their email address, requesting the receipt. Check out this article for important information about collecting check donations for your campaign.

Unfortunately, we cannot issue tax receipts to those individuals who donate with cash. Please see this article about how to donate cash donations to your own campaign after an event
