  • What is a Charitable Donation? A contribution received by an institution for either unrestricted or restricted use in the furtherance of the institution for which the institution has made no commitment of resources or services other than possibly committing to use the gift as the donor specifies. Charitable grants typically come from a corporation, foundation, or other organization rather than from an individual. SOURCE: CASE Management Reporting Standards, page. 24

  • Corporate Sponsorships Corporate sponsorships are becoming more common Corporations and other organizations often give money to institutions to sponsor activities or events, and in return, receive recognition or other benefits. The determining factor of whether corporate sponsorship donations are fully charitable is whether the recognition received constitutes advertising or whether the donor receives other substantial benefits as a result of the sponsorship, i.e. dinner tickets
  • Slide 11
  • Corporate Sponsorships, cont There are many factors to consider when determining the portion of the sponsorship that may be charitable, such as: the sponsorship should not be contingent on event attendance, ratings, or public exposure there should be no qualitative advertising of the sponsors products or services Please work with Advancement Services PRIOR to any event that seeks Corporate Sponsorships. We will help determine the charitable amount of the corporate sponsorship based upon any quid pro quo factors that may exist.
  • Slide 12
  • Things to Keep in Mind Advancement Services will work with individual departments to insure donor needs are met. For example, if a donor does not wish to be contacted by the University for future donations, we can code that individual so that they are not solicited The University is gearing up for a Campaign. Donors will expect their gifts to be counted in Campaign totals. They will expect to be listed in the official Campaign Honor Roll of Donors produced by Advancement Services Advancement Services supports the President. Before she travels, we produce briefings for her on the people she will visit. These briefings require the utmost accuracy and must include a summary of ALL donations received by the University
