Description

While many nonprofit gifts are straightforward, others present particular challenges and require special attention. There are some that can only be responded to in certain ways, others the IRS does not consider gifts at all, and still more that should be considered carefully before accepting. Understanding the specifics of these and other charitable contributions makes it possible for your institution to meet its legal requirements, protect its own interests, and provide superior donor service.

Join us online to better understand the varieties of possible contributions and your institution’s obligations for each variation. A comprehensive event on gift receipting and acceptance, this program will cover:

* Defining charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes
* Identifying the legal donor of a gift
* Gift receipt requirements and considerations
* Non-cash gift issues
* Recent tax code changes and updates
* Considerations to weigh before accepting a gift

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

US advancement services professionals of all experience levels will benefit from attendance. Novice participants will gain a strong introduction to the basics of gift receipting/acceptance and learn how to recognize more advanced topics when they arise. More seasoned participants will benefit from an advanced discussion of donor-advised funds, non-cash gifts, and new IRS form requirements. Both groups will gain from a discussion of common fundraising activities (such as charitable auctions) that present unique gift receipting/acceptance challenges and why they are not as complex as they appear.
