IS MY SPONSORSHIP TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
Food & Drink Weeks are not charity events but community events created to support and celebrate local food and drink establishments. While a portion of the net proceeds* will be donated to a local charity or charity, any Food & Drink Week sponsorships should be considered a business expense and, as such, may be tax-deductible. However, we are not tax professionals and would encourage you to contact a tax professional if you have any questions about this topic. Enter Shameless Sponsor Plug — if you are in the market for a CPA, we’d love for you to consider ours: Berge & Company CPA.

Businesses or individuals looking to potentially receive a charitable contribution tax deduction are encouraged to donate directly to a local charity or sponsor an official charity event put on by a local charity.

*Net proceeds = remainder of funds after expenses
