All of Student Wish List Project's partnered charities have 501(c)(3) status, which means that donation of goods to these organizations is tax-exempt. Donors need to include a gift receipt with their name and address if they would like to receive a receipt for their donation from the charitable organization.
Most donations can be shipped directly to the charitable organization. Other items, such as non-Amazon gift cards or groceries, can be shipped to or dropped off with Student Wish List Project, and we will arrange for delivery.
When purchasing the item on Amazon, you will be asked to select a shipping address during the checkout process. Select the charity's gift registry address (for example, "Good Grief's Gift Registry Address"). On a desktop computer, this will usually be the first address listed under "Other Addresses." On a mobile phone, it is usually the first address listed after the "Recently Used" address. Click "Use this address" (on a desktop) or "Deliver to this address" (on a phone). Detailed instructions can be found here.
If you would like to receive a receipt from the charity for your tax-deductible donation, you can include a gift receipt with your name and address with your item. When purchasing the item on Amazon, please select "This is a gift" during checkout. You will be asked to select gift options. No gift wrapping is necessary but you can opt to include a gift receipt, then fill in your name and address on the receipt. Click "Save gift options." Detailed instructions can be found here.
CAN I GET A RECEIPT FOR MY DONATION?
If you would like a receipt for your donation, please include your name and address on the gift receipt during the checkout process on Amazon. Detailed instructions can be found here.
