We are a non-profit women's club of a country club in California

Customer Question
who participates in community outreach/contributions...
We are a non-profit women's club of a country club in California who participates in community outreach/contributions. Recently we have invited vendors to sell their wares on the premises during our luncheons. Furthermore, these vendors are encouraged to donate 10% of their sales to our contribution endeavors. I am curious as to whether we are in a tax issue, are we are actually in a profit position ($1200/year) and do we need a Tax ID if they claim their contribution as a tax write off. I would welcome guidelines on this as Treasurer of this organization.

Different expert here - my name is ***** ***** please allow me to specifically answer your questions.Member income funds social clubs. This can be in the form of membership fees, dues, or assessments.However, 501(c)(7) organization may receive up to 35 percent of its gross receipts, including investment income, from sources outside of its membership without losing its tax-exempt status. No more than 15 percent of the amount may be derived from use of the club’s facilities or services by the general public or from other activities not furthering social or recreational purposes for members.Donations to exempt social and recreation clubs are NOT deductible as charitable contributions on the donor's federal income tax return.The following links contain excellent information you will find helpful:http://cullinanelaw.com/501c7-social-and-recreational-organizations-how-to-stay-tax-exempt/https://www.irs.gov/publications/p557/ch04.html#en_US_201602_publink1000200325Please let me know if you require further information or clarification.Thank you and best regards,Barb
