What is “Other Income” for a Foundation?

“Other Income” does not represent a charitable contribution, and is not deductible by the payer for tax purposes because it represents payment for a service or product received – that is, the payer receives some direct benefit.

Some examples of foundation activities that produce other income receipts are:

  • Pre-football game meals for alumni who pay to participate (i.e. tailgate events)
  • Galas
  • Alumni picnics
  • Sales of merchandise such as t-shirts, cookbooks, etc.

Other Income receipts of cash and checks for a foundation should be forwarded directly to the Foundations Accounting & Investments (FAI) office for deposit. These should not be deposited to the University Cashier’s Office.
