    Ah, how about a receipt mentioning the charitable contribution?

    I don't think you can write it off if you get something of greater value than your contribution anyway

    We could do that. Whether the IRS will accept it is a different matter, since we are not set up to be a charity right now. My accountant (or maybe my lawyer?) mentioned something last year about being able to set up some sort of limited trust that would allow this, but the paperwork is apparently horrendous, and I'd need oversight and a board or something. I will look into this for 2016, if time allows. That's what I said last year though. Big companies apparently have this for their big fundraisers, but we don't have that type of staff. Sorry for that inconvenience.

    Also, this. So, you would get whatever is above $800 or so written off, should bids get that high.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Sounds like what I say most days. Do we have $650 in the house?

    Do you mean $675?

    And thanks to @HansderHund and the rest of the thrifting thead for their generous donation of $425 to the fund. Great start to this year's drive. Thanks a ton.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It's all good.

    Anyone for $675? I think that we have about an hour left on this one.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I assume the last bid was supposed to be $675, so I'll go $700

    Good man, good man. So that resets the clock to +10 minutes. Do I have anyone throwing up a paddle for $725?
