If making a gift through a charitable IRA, charitable foundation, donor advised fund and certain other giving instruments, restrictions may apply and in most cases membership benefits cannot be applied. Based on IRS regulations, gifts from donor advised funds and charitable IRA’s may not receive any goods, services or other private benefit, such as benefit tickets, school tuition, membership fees or goods purchased at an auction. These gifts may not be used to fulfill a pre-existing pledge. Based on these IRS regulations and the terms of these types of charitable funds, the Folsom Lake College Foundation/Los Rios Foundation/Harris Center are not allowed to provide a tax receipt for such grants as the receipt generally will come from the issuing entity. Gifts from these giving instruments are processed through the Los Rios Foundation and benefit the Harris Center for the Arts but are not eligible for member benefits. The Los Rios Foundation holds the legal non-profit status 501(c) (3) for all Los Rios colleges (American River, Cosumnes River, Folsom Lake, and Sacramento City) and the Harris Center for the Arts.
