According to John Dedon:

Taxpayers who claim income tax deductions for charitable contributions must request and obtain the written acknowledgement from the charity that the contribution was made. It is due by April 17, 2012, the time the income tax return is filed. Failure to have the required substantiation from the charity can void the tax deduction.

Dedon provides a Substantiating Charitable Deductions Sample Letter for tax payers to present to a representative of the charity to fill-in and sign.
