Has anyone heard of this? I'm serving as treasurer on the BOD of a nonprofit, and their fundraising has really kicked into gear towards their goal of opening a donor milk bank in our area. We've had several large donations (which we have already received, cash in the bank), and the director just sent me a note saying that the organizations (these are for-profit companies), are asking us to send them an "Invoice" for the donation.
In the past we've always sent receipts. An invoice? That's like saying they owed us some money, not that they voluntarily made a donation, right? I don't know, to me it seems to imply that we provided a product or service and they're paying us for it. Does this seem weird to anyone else? I can create invoices but I don't know what to put in the "description" ... "invoice for donation received on November X, 2011"?
