501 c 3 details example
501 (C)(3) Details - Example

  • FMV of the tickets (Goods & Services) we have are $13.30 for the TMK concert as the contract I have with the sponsors says that in order for us to have TMK here in Denver we pay them $4000.

  • Since there are 300 seats, we have 300 * 13.30 = $4000.00. The cost of hall and rest of the things are incidentals covered by underwriting alone.

  • Anybody contributing to CFAA can deduct

    • X- ( (FMVz x Y ) * Z)

    • X = Total donation; FMVz = FMV of the event; Y = Number of Tickets; Z= Number of events

  • For a $500 Patron with 4 family members attending 2 events in 2011 both at a FMV of $13.30 

    • Deductible:  $500 - (($13.30 x 4) * 2) = $395

  • For somebody who's buying 4 $20 Tickets per event for each of the 2 events in 2011

    • Deductible: ($20*4*2) - ($13.30*4*2) = $54

  • CFAA intends to send our patrons the FMV of the ticket prices at the end of the year
