Terms & Conditions
Designated Giving Policy
To avoid being precluded from using designated funds at all if a project is oversubscribed or is terminated, the following policy is in place and is published:
“Spending of funds is confined to board approved programs and projects. Each restricted contribution designated towards a board approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the board, the remaining restricted contributions designated for such program or project will be used where needed most.”
