I received a check or money order. Where do I mail it?

Checks and money orders should be made payable to the V Foundation and be accompanied by the Offline Donation or Money Order Form that can be downloaded from your participant center. Please mail to:

the V Foundation
Attn: Delta Chi Bracket Challenge
14600 Weston Parkway
Cary, NC 27513

Can I mail in cash?

No. Please do not mail cash. If donors who have given cash contributions would like a gift acknowledgment for tax purposes, cash should be converted to a money order or a cashier’s check. Use the Money Order Form found in the participant center to list the money order amount, donor names and addresses, along with correlating gift amounts. A personal check may not be used for requesting individual tax acknowledgments for multiple donors.

What if I receive a check that has been made payable to me?

If your donor wants to receive a tax deduction for the gift, they will need to write a new check and make it payable to the V Foundation. Or you may cash the check and convert into a money order or cashier’s check, using the Money Order Form found in the participant center. If your donor does not need to receive a tax deduction for the contribution, you can endorse the back of the check as shown below and mail with the Offline Donation Form.
