I figured in a reasonable fashion that this subject might be be a good fit for this topic category. If not mods move.

I been paying forward a lot in life lately (really hope others do as well). So I got thinking about along with my help been thinking about a letter along with the donations. So again I ask "what is the name for a person that receives donations?"

I even looked it up on line. I came up with "Donee" And "Don-lee" and just recipient, receiver? I just want to make sure what the true pronunciation would be before I Draw up and print letters.

Thanks ATS for what you can come up with.

Here is a link to a odd discussion on the matter. Seems the mention it being a "Rare" word which I find odd. maybe I am on to something here?

Best I can figure the donations are mandatory and the recipients are on welfare

It depends on who is receiving the donation and why.
There are many names for those who receive donations, all of them have connoctations based on who they are, and how and why they receive the donation.

The only word that is one size fits all, is what IAMTAT posted.
Beneficiary.

A person that donates is a donor and a person that receives the donation is a donee.

Pretty simple.

Is it? Or is it just your opinion? See that's exactly what I am getting at with this post. I like you as a poster and I would have thought you would have put a link or proof of your statement to be fact or opinion?
