Community Benefit

Contribution for Fireworks Display

Please Take Note: The information provided does not constitute legal or tax advice. The material is provided for informational/educational purposes only. Please consult with counsel regarding your organization's particular circumstances.

Question: Can we report as community benefit our contribution to the community to put on a fireworks display for special events?

Recommendation: We recommend not reporting as community benefit because we cannot see that there is a community health need here. If the hospital makes this contribution, we recommend it come from the public relations budget and not be reported as community benefit.
