Many tax-exempt organizations now have websites that accept donations, online. In an Information Letter, the IRS indicates that no prohibition exists against a 501(c)(3) organization using an Internet fundraising platform to raise funds. Website or email solicitations should comply with the same rules that apply to other solicitations. IRS advised that these websites should contain the required disclosures regarding deductibility. Receipts generated by electronic donations also should contain disclosures. Information Letter 2013-0001
