Your organization might want to purchase items (including flowers) or gift cards for these reasons:
- as a thank you to a speaker or someone who has assisted your organization in some way
- as prizes for an event that includes some sort of competition
- as door prizes, just for showing up at the event
- as an incentive to do something (such as complete a survey)
It is permitted to use the purchase card for this purpose. Use the purchase card request form.
All gifts (tangible items and gift cards) valued at $50 or higher are considered taxable income and must be reported. Have the gift or gift card recipient complete a gift and gift card recipient report. For gifts under $50, we only need the name(s) of the recipients. This information should be included with your receipts.
