Benefits of sponsorship

    We have an office on campus that is working to develop sponsorship opportunities in the community. In addition to name recognition benefits, they want to give sponsors the chance to give away items at select events throughout the year. This seemed to be something that not fall within the bounds of a tax deductible sponsorship, but I'd not encountered this before and thought I'd check with the group.

    Yes, you are correct.  They cannot cross the advertising line which nearly always means they cannot have booths or representatives in a position to market their stuff.  I am attaching a good summary from ASAE on the IRS regulations.  IOf course, please let your Counsel weigh-in.
