Student Clubs and Organizations - Fundraising

2). Charitable Fundraising Methods (deposit into Cal Poly Pomona Foundation Inc. account): DONORS WILL RECEIVE A CHARITABLE TAX RECEIPT

 

  • Students in a boothA charitable donation is a gift to the University where the University has a related use and the donor has the intent to make a donation. This donation is then counted as a gift and the donor receives a charitable tax receipt and may be able to take a charitable write-off for their tax purposes.
  • There may not be any exchange of goods or services in order for a donation to be considered charitable. Bake sales and car wash events are considered fundraising activities, but the dollars received for these types of activities are not charitable donations.

 

Outreach for Charitable Donations:

  • When seeking external program support, it is recommended that a registered CPP student club or organization utilize the “Introduction Letter for Charitable Support for Clubs” to provide to a potential individual or organization providing program support.
  • After receiving external program support, it is recommended that a registered CPP student club or organization utilize the “Thank You Letter for Charitable Support for Clubs” to provide to a potential individual or organization providing program support to acknowledge receipt of program support.
