unconfirmed swag for virtual event, FMV issue

  • 1.  unconfirmed swag for virtual event, FMV issue

    We are holding a virtual fundraiser in February 2021.  The event committee is still soliciting our "swag bag" and our donation and ticket links will be going live shortly.  How do I communicate an uncalculated FMV to a donor?  We will send an electronic confirmation when the ticket/donations are made in real time and a formal acknowledgment will be sent at the end of the year when the bags contents are finalized.

    I feel a little uncomfortable allowing donors to give without the full picture.  *They will also have the option to decline benefits.  It could also turn out that the swag is nominal and not an issue.

    How have you handled this situation?
