FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...
1. Is my donation tax deductible? Will I receive written acknowledgement for tax purposes?
YES, all donations are tax-deductible through the organization of your choice. Gifts for the residents of Vindobona Nursing & Rehabilitation Center during our Winter Giving Project are NOT.
Since we are not the final recipient of your donation, we do not offer written acknowledgement through our drive-up collection days. However, if you would like to receive written acknowledgement for tax deductible purposes, we suggest making your donation online or through direct delivery options to the sponsoring organization as we are just a facilitator in the delivery process.
