My sincere apologies for the delay. Someone sent your question to another category and I was unable to respond until the moderators returned it to the Legal category.
A gift is not considered a legal contract since there is no consideration being paid or given up by the party receiving the gift. The law
typically implies a gift where there is no writing or evidence indicating the money is being paid as a loan or for services rendered. Therefore, there is specific form that is needed to document this transaction typically.
However, if you wish to document the transaction, you may have the recipient sign an acknowledgment of the gift. The document can be handwritten or typed and simply indicated the amount gifted, the date, and purpose of the gift/donation if you wish to include that as well.
Here is a link which provides sample language you can use for the acknowledgment:
