Frequently Asked Questions


Is my online payment information secure?
Will I receive a gift receipt for tax purposes?

Yes, you will receive a gift receipt for every transaction. If making your gift online, your receipt will be included in the email notifying you that your payment has been processed successfully. If making your gift via a check and sending by U.S. mail, you will receive a receipt in the mail.

Do you offer recurring giving? If so, at what frequency?

We do offer recurring giving options. Donors have the option to schedule payments monthly, quarterly, or annually. The payments will stop when your commitment has been filled (or should your credit card expire or the number change). You will receive an email notification from the Downtown Mechanicsburg Partnership if a payment fails to process due to credit card issues.

How do I get my company to match my gift to the RENAISSANCE?

If your employer has a matching gift program, you may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift to RENAISSANCE Mechanicsburg.

To find out if your (or your spouse/partner’s) employer has a matching gift program, and how it works, please enter your employers name below:

While each company has its own guidelines, the matching gift process is usually quite simple. If making your gift online, be sure to complete the “Employer Gift Matching” section. If sending your gift in the mail, please follow the steps outlined below:

  • Request a matching gift form from your employer.
  • Complete and submit the form to the Downtown Mechanicsburg Partnership with your gift.
  • The Partnership will verify the completed form and return it to your employer, and a matching-gift contribution will be issued to the Partnership.

Mail or fax your completed form(s) with your gift to:

The Downtown Mechanicsburg Partnership
P. O. Box 724
Mechanicsburg, PA 17055
Fax: 717-741-3839

Can my gift be anonymous?

You have the option to make your gift as an anonymous donor. Be sure to check the box labeled “I would like my gift to be anonymous” when making your gift online. You will still receive a gift receipt for tax purposes.

Can I make a gift in memory or in honor of someone?

We do offer memorial gift options. When making your gift via our online form, you will have the opportunity to make your gift a tribute to someone special. Please remember to include the name and address if you would like us to notify someone of your tribute.

When is the latest I can send a check to count for the current tax year?

All gifts received via U.S. mail must be postmarked by December 31 to count for the current tax year. Online gifts must be completed by midnight central time on December 31. Stock transfers must be fully executed by December 31.

I entered the wrong gift amount. How can I get refunded?

Please forward your email confirmation to info@downtownmechanicsburg.com with an explanation that you entered the wrong gift amount. We will issue you a refund for your payment. You can then go back to our online form to make your gift in the correct amount.
