Are there any legal considerations when accepting a "donation" or "contribution" from a consumer, subtracting our own operating expenses and salaries, then funneling the remainder to charity or non-profits of the consumer's choosing?
Do we need to call it a contribution from the consumer and not a donation?
I assume this is the same model used by organizations like United Way, I just want to make sure that there are no legal roadblocks or issues that I'm missing.
Does anyone have any literature I could read about this model?
We are a for-profit organization.
Thanks for your help.
