Create a printable donation form by downloading and customizing a template from a site such as PrintableCashReciepts.com, WordsTemplates.org, AtYourBusiness.com or BusinessFormTemplate.com, as of 2015. Alternatively, use the formatting options in a word processing program such as Microsoft Word to create a form with the appropriate sections for your donation needs.
If you plan to customize an existing template to create a printable donation form, make sure you have the necessary software to edit it. Some sites, such as PrintableCashReciepts.com, only provide the templates for free as PDFs, which are only editable in certain specialized programs such as Adobe Acrobat. After downloading the file, open it in the appropriate editing program and review the sections to identify any areas that do not suit your needs, such as areas that mention services or spaces for unnecessary donor information. Be sure to include the name of your organization in the header, along with contact information for any person responsible for handling the donations.
To create your own custom printable donation form, open a blank document in Microsoft Word and use the justification tools to add the name and address of your organization to the upper left or right corner. Return to center justification to create the title of the form, and then include a brief summary of the form's purpose. For donation forms that cover physical items, use the cell tools to create a section where the donor may write in the names and values of specific items.
