Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture charitable donations given, not received, by the organization.
  • In-kind donations are in the form of goods and/or services rather than money (e.g., donating food and clothing for natural hazard victims). Pricing discounts (e.g. to non-profits) should not be used as part of this metric; only free services are considered to be in-kind donations. The monetary equivalent of pro bono services provided can be included as in-kind donations; however, "low bono" services are considered to be pricing discounts and should not be included. Organizations are encouraged to footnote their method for calculating the value of in-kind donations.
  • Donations made to organizations that service political causes, despite their non-profit status, should be excluded.
  • Organizations are encouraged to report this metric in conjunction with Community Service Hours Contributed (OI8429), which are not considered in-kind donations, and Charitable Practices (OI7421).
