As far as 'paperwork' is concerned, if you're talking about something more than an occasional $10 bill (or $20, if they catch you in a generous mood), write a check. In the 'memo' section on the face of the check make a notation about the cause you're supporting, and put some sort of 'flag' in your check register so that, at tax time, you'll spot the item.More organized fundraising groups, who are looking for bigger bucks, will be geared up to give you a letter stating that you received no goods or services in exchange for your money. Most "friends of girls' lacrosse' groups are not that sophisticted, though.
