Reporting and Depositing Voluntary SupportDefinition:
Voluntary Support includes monetary support from individuals, corporations, partnerships, foundations, associations, and other non-governmental entities for which no expectation of economic benefit to the grantor exists or is implied.
Reimbursement of expenses, income derived from auctions, transfers from internal sources of funds, and funds received to support editorial expenses are not considered Voluntary Support and should not be transmitted using a Form 44.
