The Alliances needs to record expenses directly connected to the work you did as an expedition volunteer, specifically for professionals who donated their professional services in preparation and working in-country.
The hourly pay/billing rate is required only if you are providing professional services (i.e. physician, medical assistant, nurse, auditor, etc.) If you are helping on the expedition, but not in your personal professional capacity (i.e. your job at home is a teacher but in Mali, you are providing volunteer support for the medical team), you do not need to include your hourly pay/billing rate.
The Alliance tracks all volunteer hours donated by Expedition Participants, professional and otherwise.
This form is for the Alliance's records. Some of your additional travel and out-of-pocket costs may qualify for tax-deduction. It strongly advised you speak with your tax advisor. Contact the OA Staff if you need additional documentation or receipts for tax purposes.
Please contact Ouelessebougou Alliance's Executive Director, Judy Hut, if you have any questions. You can reach her at 801-983-6254 or firstname.lastname@example.org
