How do you decide where the money goes?
All of the money is given based on the discretion of the board. Our Charter outlines to whom we can and cannot give money to, but in most cases it’s a situation where there is a “unique and dire circumstance” or some sort of similar situation.
Unfortunately, with limited funding, we can’t say yes to everything. We do our best to give where the need is greatest and the most good can be done.
Can I write off the money I donate?
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, where funds donated are tax-deductible. We became eligible for this status on July 29th, 2014. Our EIN number is 30-0799073
What if I have an idea for a fundraiser or a worthy cause?
Let us know. If we’re limited to the ideas of the board, then we aren’t doing what we sought out to do.
How do I apply for help?
If you need help, or know of a worthy cause or a colleague who could use help, please let us know. We can’t guarantee that we will be able to provide support in every situation, but we will certainly do whatever we can to help those in unique and dire circumstances.
How much of the money actually goes to help?
100% of all donations go back to helping the employees. Our board members through their donations, completely support our operating costs (bank fees, website hosting, etc.), but the board doesn’t take a penny out, and we’re not using donations to buy lunch for meetings or anything like that. We try to run as lean as possible so we can do the most good with the limited resources we have.
