Well, fortunately for you the dollar limit for 1099s is $600. You do not have to issue them if the recipient receives less than $600. Do you want to discuss what would happen if somebody received more than $600.
In order to give the donors a tax deduction you must be a recognized charity by the IRS, a 501(c)(3).
Oh, I see, sure they can, but once again, there's no reason for them to 1099 you if their payment is under $600.
