Free Will Donation
We have a dinner fundraiser where the attendees are asked to make a free will donation to the youth program (specifically their summer mission programs).
Postings related to this state that the amount on their contribution statement should be the amount donated less the cost of the meal. I have no way of knowing the amount it cost for the meal, nor do I know if the amount received is for 1 attendee or more.
Since I do not have the information in order to deduct the cost of the meal, should I not include these donations on the attendees contribution statements?
