Board compensation directly to foundation

    We have a donor who directed his corporate board compensation directly to the hospital foundation and wants tax credit. The check came from the corporation with a letter asking to send an acknowledged to the board member since it's in his honor. 

    I'm telling my managers that we have to give tax credit to the legal donor; she wants "proof" that we can't send the donor/board member a tax's been a while since this was questioned so looking for the best "IRS/audit" answer.

    You need to contact the corporation and ask them if they will be issuing a 1099 to the individual.  If they are that is all you need to know to record the gift on the individual's record!

    If the corporation says it is their gift "in honor of" the individual, then it is a corporate gift.
