Sponsorship Benefits

  • 1.  Sponsorship Benefits

    Posted 15 days ago
    We recently hosted a golf tournament and offered several sponsorship levels. Each level received promotional benefits and our top-tier sponsors also received a certain number of complimentary golfers in the tournament. We advertised the gift vs fee breakdown for each sponsorship level on our registration form.

    One of our sponsors is questioning whether they can get 100% gift credit for their sponsorship since they did not cash in on the benefits we offered (i.e. a complimentary foursome in the tournament). Is this something we can offer?

    No.  Not unless they declined the benefits in advance.  Failure to use benefits that are given does not reinstate deductibility.  The sponsor "owned" the benefits when they made their payment.  Failure to use their benefits does not change anything - they still received the benefits and chose not to use them.
