Our hospital hosts the kickoff meeting for the annual United Selective Fund Campaign for our community. We provide the room and food for the meeting, which is attended by area business people, but the donation money collected from the campaign benefit the community. We also have employees who act as solicitors for the Campaign to get employees to donate, and we sell cookies and brownies to our employees and volunteers with the proceeds going to the Campaign.
What do other hospitals report for this? In-Kind donations under E3 for meeting room, business meals, employee time, and cost of cookies?
I guess the part that really confuses me about this is the meals for the business people, as they are not an underserved population; however, this could be a cost of organizing a community benefit.

This sounds similar to the annual United Way campaign that we do at Yale-New Haven. We count it under E3 in-kind donations and quantify the time the employees spend on the campaign, which can be fairly significant and any other costs associated with the campaign incurred by the hospital.
In the notes section I generally include additional regarding the campaign such as amount raised or anything that might be useful in a write up…which should probably go in the Leadership Journal but I find this easier.
