Interactions with Vendors and Other Commercial Entities
Role of Development Office
As a not-for-profit organization Mount Sinai may, through its Office of Development, solicit and accept charitable donations in furtherance of Mount Sinai's mission. In order to ensure compliance with federal and state laws regarding charitable donations, individual departments can partner with Development to solicit corporate contributions; departments should not, on their own, directly seek donations from vendors with which they do business.
Departments should consult with the Office of Development if questions arise concerning possible contributions from commercial entities.
