Donation vs. Contribution

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, I have a question and was looking for some insight.

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.

Because your questions involve specific issues that need to be answered, I suggest you consult with local counsel. An expert in business law would get right to the point of the questions you are asking. You may wish to use the FindLaw: Business Lawyers Directory. Many of the lawyers do offer a free consultation. Hope that helps.
