    Nonprofits often team up with for-profit companies to conduct fundraising activities, with part of the proceeds from the sale of a product or service (such as a book or t-shirt) benefiting the nonprofit. You may be surprised to hear that many states, including Georgia, have laws regulating these promotions! Corporate sponsorships are another fantastic way for nonprofits to raise funds, but nonprofits must proceed with caution when structuring sponsorship benefits. The payment could be either a corporate sponsorship or advertising income, depending on how the donor is recognized and what the donor receives in return. The distinction is significant because advertising income can be considered Unrelated Business Income and can therefore be taxable.
