AFP CA, Captial Chapter Event: Is It Tax Deductible?

Program Description:
As fundraisers, we make decisions every day that have financial implications for our organizations and our donors. Issues such as tax deductibility, fair market value, sponsorship benefits, non-cash gifts, and expense allocations arise in nearly every fundraising technique. You’ll learn how to talk to your donors about tax- and finance-related issues, where to go for more information, and when you need to call in an expert.
