Our common house is not rentable; we don't rent to any outsiders. The space is for the use of residents, and any of us can reserve the space for whatever use is suitable, which can include such things as non-profit fundraisers, house concerts, etc. There is no fee but an appropriate donation is expected.

It's all in how you look at it you see.

I know this topic has been previously discussed, but I'd like some fresh input 
about policies for making available a community common house for various events 
like fundraisers for local nonprofit organizations, house concerts, or weddings 
of friends or family of community members. Can an HOA avoid  taxable income 
that might be generated by renting the common house by instead offering the 
space on a donation basis? If this is what your community does, how does your 
community decide on donation amounts to request and do you use any kind of 
written agreement?
