Question about in kind donation

I have a question coming from a library about budget for their summer reading programs. The library received coupons from an ice cream store and from a pizza restaurant offering freebies or discounts if they completed the required reading. The library wants to add the value of these coupons to their budget as in-kind donations. I do not think that there is a measurable value to these coupons and don't think that the coupons should be added to the budget, even as in-kind donations, for the Public Library Survey. 


How are you handling these in your states?

I would agree with you. Data element #303 specifically says “Do not include the value of any contributed or in-kind services or the value of any non-monetary gifts or donations.” That is the Federal Definition (p. 46 of this year’s book).
