Quid Pro Quo Contributions 61 Quid Pro Quo Contributions 61

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l IRS Definition – A payment made to OU from Quid Pro Quo Contributions l IRS Definition – A payment made to OU from a donor partly as a contribution and partly in consideration for goods or services (e. g. fundraising dinner). – The value of the benefits (premiums) the donor receives is a key factor in determining the amount of the actual gift. – The actual gift is only the amount of the contribution that exceeds the value of the benefits received by the donor. 62

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l IRS Regulation Highlights: – The items must have a Quid Pro Quo Contributions l IRS Regulation Highlights: – The items must have a “substantial” value to be considered as benefits and therefore, to be subtracted from the donors contribution. Items that have insubstantial (token) value need not be subtracted from the contribution. 63

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Token Value Benefits – Small items of merchandise or Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Token Value Benefits – Small items of merchandise or other benefits (bookmarks, calendars, key chains, mugs, posters, tee shirts, etc. ) offered when donors make a contribution. l l Token value in relation to the amount contributed Burdensome to inform each donor of the amount of the payment that is deductible. Inconsequential or insubstantial so that the full amount of the donor’s payment should be deductible as a contribution. IRS has provided rules under which a donor may disregard the value of token benefits and deduct the full amount of a payment. 64

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Token Benefit Rules (2010) – A payment is fully Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Token Benefit Rules (2010) – A payment is fully deductible if: l l l The fair market value of all the benefits received by the donor is not more than $96 or 2% of the payment, whichever is less, or The donor’s payment is $48 or more and the only benefits received are token items that bear OU’s name or logo and have an aggregate cost of no more than $9. 60.

Quid Pro Quo Contributions 68 Quid Pro Quo Contributions 68

Quid Pro Quo Contributions Notice the tickets did not cost OU anything but they Quid Pro Quo Contributions Notice the tickets did not cost OU anything but they did cost somebody something and are NOT a token item. 69

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l l l Fair Market Value (FMV): The value of Quid Pro Quo Contributions l l l Fair Market Value (FMV): The value of benefits received by the donor must be based on the FMV of the benefits (except for token items), not necessarily the cost of the items. Raffles: No portion of a payment made resulting in an opportunity to win a prize (raffle tickets, door prizes, etc. ) is a gift. Preferential Seating: If a donor receives the right to purchase preferred seating for an athletic event in return for their gift, only 80% of their contribution is tax deductible. 70

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Events: – The value of benefits received (round Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Events: – The value of benefits received (round of golf, dinner, drinks, gifts, etc. ) by the donor must be based on the FMV of the benefits determined through a “good faith” effort, not necessarily the cost of the item. – OU has a procedure for determining FMV for goods and services provided to donors at fundraising events where something of value is exchanged for a payment. – OU has an Excel template to help determine the FMV of the goods and services. 71

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Events: – The following steps should occur for Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Events: – The following steps should occur for all fundraising events where something of value is exchanged for a payment: l l The annual giving department is to be notified by the event organizer prior to event materials being created. The annual giving department will work in collaboration with the event organizers to complete the fair market value (FMV) excel worksheet which will determine: – An estimated person cost for the event – The payment amount to attend the event – The FMV of any and all goods and/or services provided to the payee in return for their payment to attend the event. l l The annual giving department will provide the costs, payment amount and FMV to the director of development information services for review and approval. The vice president or associate vice president of university relations will receive the documents for final approval. 72

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Events: – The FMV Calculation: l l Determine Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Events: – The FMV Calculation: l l Determine all the costs (direct and indirect) associated with the goods and services received by the donor. Determine the average cost person. The FMV is what the average person would pay for a “like” event at a “like” venue, not necessarily the cost. Therefore, if the calculated cost person is $100, but the average person would pay $75 for a “like” event at a “like” venue, the FMV would be $75. The FMV must be communicated to the donor on marketing materials. 73

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Donors Opting out of Receiving Goods and Services: – Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Donors Opting out of Receiving Goods and Services: – Needs to be communicated to OU prior to the event and prior to processing the payment. – We can’t give a donor an amended receipt with a higher gift amount because they told us after the event that they were not able to attend. – The IRS says even if a donor does not take advantage of the benefits, the benefits were still provided. 74

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Auctions: – The bidder must know the FMV Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Fundraising Auctions: – The bidder must know the FMV of the item being auctioned prior to bidding in order to claim they had charitable intent by bidding in excess of FMV, l if not: – No charitable donation was made by the winning bidder, l because: – The winning bid becomes the basis for the FMV as the transaction became a “purchase”. 75

Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Impact on You: – Gift Registers: The amount received Quid Pro Quo Contributions l Impact on You: – Gift Registers: The amount received from the donor may not be entirely tax deductible. You will need to break out the gift amount vs. the quid pro quo amount on the gift register. 76

Corporate Sponsorships vs. Advertising l l Corporations often give money to sponsor activities, events, Corporate Sponsorships vs. Advertising l l Corporations often give money to sponsor activities, events, or projects and in return receive recognition on campus or at the event. Most sponsorship dollars are gifts as long as the recognition received does not constitute advertising. The IRS defines advertising as competitive pricing or product information displayed because of the donation. The recognition for a sponsor should be limited to: – – – Sponsors location, telephone number, internet address Value-neutral description of sponsor’s products or services Sponsor’s brand/trade name or product/service listings 82

Contributions vs. Contracts (Exchange Transactions) l Some contracts may appear to be much like Contributions vs. Contracts (Exchange Transactions) l Some contracts may appear to be much like contributions therefore a careful assessment of the contract is needed to determine if OU has given up an asset or incurred a liability (of commensurate value). 83

Contributions vs. Contracts (Exchange Transactions) l Factors to aid in distinguishing between contributions and Contributions vs. Contracts (Exchange Transactions) l Factors to aid in distinguishing between contributions and exchange transactions. l No one factor will provide sufficient information for appropriate classification. l From NACUBO (National Association of College / University Business Officers) 84

Scholarship Gifts l l No gift if a donor chooses the recipient. Discourage donors Scholarship Gifts l l No gift if a donor chooses the recipient. Discourage donors involvement in the selection process (tax, FERPA, practical issues). OU will make final decision on all awards. If OU chooses the student, it is a gift but the donor still should not list the student’s name on gift documents. Need to keep track of recipients for stewardship purposes 85

Endowments l Endowment Fund – Quarterly distributions to spending fund – Gift / pledges Endowments l Endowment Fund – Quarterly distributions to spending fund – Gift / pledges usually designated to endowment l Spending Fund – Receives income distributions from endowment – Expenses must be incurred out of spending fund vs. a general fund followed up by a transfer JV 86

Endowments l Underwater Endowments – When the market value falls below the amount donated Endowments l Underwater Endowments – When the market value falls below the amount donated (historical cost) – No distributions to spending 87

Endowments l Expense Explanation Report – A report template was developed – assistant deans Endowments l Expense Explanation Report – A report template was developed – assistant deans and/or business managers to summarize spending fund financial activity – To be provided to university relations, along with deans, on a semi-annual basis – Reviewed by the accounting office and by the Assistant Dean in CAS 88

Endowments l Expense Explanation Report - Results – – – Enhanced Stewardship - Spreading Endowments l Expense Explanation Report - Results – – – Enhanced Stewardship - Spreading reporting and reconciliation responsibility to those with spending control over the funds Increase the timeliness of annual endowment letters to donors. Since units have to provide this information anyway, a more logical and effective way, with deadlines has been developed (see sample report). Allows units to stay on top of unspent funds - When done semi-anually (for December and June), this will allow the assistant deans and business managers to stay on top of unspent funds and to remember the need to transfer funds timely when dollars are spent from other funds on specific endowment purposes (although the best practice is to spend funds directly from the endowment’s spending fund and not do transfers) 90
