There are certain questions that a qualified donee (such as a registered charity) must consider to be able to determine if it received a gift. If the donation is considered a gift, the qualified donee can issue a receipt to the donor.
Here are the questions:
Was the gift made voluntarily? A gift must be given freely. If it the gift was given because of a contractual or other obligation, then a receipt cannot be issued.
Was there a transfer of property? A receipt can only be issued for a gift of property and not for a gift of service.
