Hello CBISA Community,
Our hospital has a Foundation affiliated that makes significant contributions to the community, many of which I’d be inclined to classify as Community Benefit (event sponsorships, donations to community nonprofit orgs, etc.). Do you all have any guidance on whether or not contributions from the affiliated Foundation can be counted, since they are not contributions from the hospital entity itself? The Foundation files under a separate tax ID.
Thank you,April 10, 2017 at 2:25 pm #12227

We do not capture our Foundation’s contributions because – like yours – they file under a separate tax ID.April 10, 2017 at 2:25 pm #12228

We have a similar sponsorship program although it is not through a Foundation. I use the following guidance under Cash and In-Kind Contributions:
E1. Cash Donations
Only count those donations to organizations and programs that are for the same type of
activities and programs that would count as community benefit provided by the hospital:
• Contributions provided to not-for-profit community organizations.
• Contributions for providing technical assistance or evaluation of community
• Contributions to charity events of not-for-profit organizations, after subtracting
the market value of participation by the employees or organization.
• Financial assistance given outside the local community in response to natural disasters
• Event sponsorship.
