Please note that recent IRS guidance indicates that event sponsorships and tickets may not be paid for using grants from Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) or other exempt funds due to the personal benefit received by the donor in exchange for the contribution. Further, the IRS has ruled that bifurcation of donations (splitting the deductible portion from the non-deductible portion of the grant) may not be permitted. If you do not attend the event, and do not send guests in your place, your sponsorship may be funded 100% through your DAF. Aditionally, using DAF grants to pay for auction items purchased at the event may not be permitted. H+H recommends that Gala sponsors and ticket buyers consult their donor-advised fund manager, tax advisor, and legal counsel for definitive tax guidance.
The Handel and Haydn Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Tax ID #: 04-2126598. Each gala ticket includes a donation of $475 and a non-deductible amount of $275 representing the fair market value of the event. Each purchaser agrees to allow H+H to retain the donated portion to support ongoing operations for Fiscal Year 2020.
