All donations made through the Omaze platform go to the Charities Aid Foundation America (CAF America), a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. CAF America has partnered with Omaze to make giving internationally and domestically safe, easy and effective for U.S. donors by raising charitable donations from members of the public to fund monetary grants to other charitable organizations.
Anyone who donates to CAF America through the Omaze platform receives chances to win prizes, however, no donation is required to enter to win an experience, and a donation does not increase your chances of winning a sweepstakes experience. Because a donation is not required to enter, and because CAF America is a U.S. charity, all donations made by U.S. donors through the Omaze platform are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If your donation is accompanied by an experience perk, the amount of your donation that is deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes may be limited to the excess of the amount contributed over the value of goods or services provided. If you have any questions regarding your tax obligations, you should consult with your own tax advisor.
For any donations made prior to May 13th, 2019 for U.S. donors who would like us to send you a formal donation tax receipt, please contact our Customer Experience team at email@example.com.
For any donations made on or after October 29th, 2020 for U.S. donors, your confirmation email can act as your tax receipt. Please keep this confirmation for your own personal records. If you need it to be resent, you can contact our Customer Experience team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any donations made between May 13th, 2019 - October 29th, 2020 for U.S. donors, our Customer Experience team would be more than happy to resend you an updated version of your order confirmation email that can act as your tax receipt. You can contact them at email@example.com.
For International donors, we're unable to provide any tax documentation or receipts other than what is provided to U.S. donors. You may request tax receipts based on the above timelines but they will be made to U.S. standards. As always, we recommend you speak with a tax professional before deducting any donations made through Omaze to CAF America on your taxes. While we're always more than happy to assist you, we cannot advise any donor (whether domestic or international) on applying their donations to their taxes.
