Can we offset mandatory donation with ticket sales?
My daughter’s local 501(c)(3) swim academy has recently organized a “mandatory” "Taco Fund Raising Event." They have asked each parent to sell $200 worth of tickets, or if they can’t sell the tickets, to pay from their pocket. We are already paying for the swim lessons and donating supplies and service hours. Can they ask for a mandatory donation like this?
