Events hosted in the name of your NVCF fund must have insurance pre-approval. Complete this form to request coverage and provide us with important information to assure compliance with various laws.

Are you having a fundraising event (including any event that includes the sale of food or goods, or a raffle)? Please review the following guide to rules and laws that pertain to sales tax and raffles in the state of California, as well as disclosure requirements mandated by the IRS. 

This guide is designed to familiarize you and your group of volunteers about what rules affect your fundraising efforts, as well as let you know what we need to properly report the results of your work.

Log details of any and all items sold at the fundraising event. We will take care of reporting the sales of taxable items for you and charge your fund for the sales tax expense. But if we don’t get accurate information, our default position is to report all proceeds as taxable. Download and use the following spreadsheets to give us the detail needed and attach substantiation for each category of proceeds received.
