G.C.R. prides itself in full transparency to the public and our donors to maintain a high level of trust with all involved. Our staff personally participates and supervises each and every investigation to ensure that resources are utilized both efficiently and effectively. Many other organizations collect charitable contributions then outsource the operational and investigative segments of their cases. At G.C.R, we use internal investigative teams to conduct every aspect of our mission.
Donations can be made with a credit/debit card through our website via a secure PayPal transaction, personal check, or cash.
Does my donation qualify as a charitable tax contribution? If so, what documentation do I receive from G.C.R. to prove this?
All donations qualify as charitable tax deductions. Upon making a donation through our website, the donor will automatically receive a tax deductible donation receipt via email. If a donation is made via check or cash, the donor will receive a tax deductible donation receipt directly from our staff.
All donors have the option to receive our monthly electronic newsletter that will keep them informed of how G.C.R is utilizing funds in furtherance of our mission. G.C.R. maintains an itemized list of all expenditures for donors to review upon request.
All donors have complete control over their level of involvement in the cause. We honor requests for anonymity, and also welcome donors to be publicly involved in the organization.
