Not-for-profits (NFPs) frequently receive contributions from individuals, foundations, businesses, other NFPs and government entities. These contributions can come with donor-imposed conditions, restrictions, or both. In this CPE course, you will learn the core principles for recognition and measurement of contributions and have an opportunity to work through real-world scenarios. Topics covered include promises to give, donated goods and services, distinguishing contributions from exchange transactions and conditional contributions from unconditional contributions, performance guarantees, and below-market interest rate loans.
