It’s easy to add offline donations to your CAN page:

1. Visit your CAN fundraising page.
2. On the right-hand side of the page, under OFFLINE DONATIONS, click “Add Offline Donations.”
3. A pop-up screen will appear where you will enter the donor’s information and the donation value.
4. Click Add Offline Donation.
5. Enter each donor’s information on your donation form so we can issue a tax receipt to that particular donor.

Mail the completed donation form and check(s) to:

FAST
P.O. Box 608
Downers Grove, Illinois 60515

Please note, FAST cannot accept cash donations. Please convert all cash donations to a money order or cashier’s check. If you receive several cash donations, you can convert them into one money order or check.

If you write a check to FAST, we will be required to issue a tax receipt to you directly. How does this differ from cash? This will occur because the IRS will consider the donation directly from you and not your donors; as such, you will receive a tax receipt directly from FAST. Additionally, the IRS will consider the money you deposited into your account as income to you and you will be taxed on that income.

Make checks out to FAST. Please be sure the memo has the name of the CAN page you would like it added to as an offline gift.

FAST
P.O. Box 608
Downers Grove, Illinois 60515

Once a donation is processed, it cannot be changed.

If a check is made out to you personally, endorse the check by signing the back of the check and add, “Payable to FAST.” Include the check with the donation form.

The individual/organization listed on the check will be the individual/entity that will receive the tax receipt.

If a business donates goods and services to your event, that is considered an “in-kind” donation to your event and not to FAST; therefore, FAST would not be able to issue a tax receipt.

Yes, we are proud to say we can accept donations from anywhere in the world. The amount entered for the donation will be processed in U.S. dollars. For example, if you enter “100,” that means you are making a $100 gift in U.S. dollars. Your credit card company will then convert the donation to your local currency at exchange rates and fees determined by your credit card issuer or financial institution.

FAST is based in the United States. You will receive an email receipt for tax purposes. Gifts made from non-U.S. residents may not qualify for tax exemptions. Check the laws in your country.

As diverse as our Angelman community is, we are all united in one goal: a better future for our children. FAST is committed to bringing life-changing treatments to clinical trial within two years, but we need your support. Help us cross the finish line. We are so close.
