As you may know, the IRS has not yet issued guidance governing contributions from Donor Advised Funds. The sector “best practices” regarding grants from Donor Advised Funds, Private/Family Foundations, and Corporate Foundations have been evolving. Individual donors are not able to accept benefits in return for contributions made from a Donor Advised Fund. In effect, this means the Symphony is no longer permitted to offer benefits such as tickets to concerts/events and meals in exchange for such contributions.

The Symphony would be happy to accept payment directly from the individual/ corporation for the published price of the event, and offer name recognition in programs and other materials based on the total amount received, including any additional gift from the Donor Advised Fund or Foundation. Please contact your Foundation, Donor Advised Fund or other professional advisors for guidance on your specific situation.
