I donated to a charity but don’t have a receipt. Can I still claim a charitable deduction??

If you don’t have a receipt or other form of documentation for the donation you made, you can’t deduct it as a charitable contribution.

The IRS says documentation can be a bank record or a written communication from the qualified charity that includes the organization’s name, the amount you contributed and the date of your contribution.
