CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS GUIDELINES
This proposal is set forth by the Charitable Contributions Committee. It is the intention of the SBCPOA to be fair and fiscally responsible with the dues of its members. As such, we have set up guidelines for donations, contributions, hospitality gifts, sponsorships and or other like financial considerations when the need arises. These items will be the responsibility of the committee and will not require a Board vote to implement.
DONATIONS / SPONSORSHIPS
Baker to Vegas Team: Will receive a one time $500 donation per year. All requests must be submitted at least thirty days in advance for consideration. Conditions: SBCPOA logo must be displayed in advertisement, banner or team uniform. Additionally, they will also provide the SBCPOA with a team photo. The request for funding must be in writing with the names of the participants.
Sport Teams and Charities: A maximum of $150 per year for each sports team will be allotted. All requests must be submitted at least thirty days in advance. Conditions: SBCPOA logo must be displayed in advertisement, banner or team uniform. Additionally, they will also provide the SBCPOA with a team photo. The request for funding must be in writing and will include the sports events and the names of the participants. There will be only one donation made to each team or organization per calendar year. (The SBCPOA logo requirement can be reconsidered pending on the sport team or charities capabilities.)
The SBCPOA will only donate up to a total of $2,000 per year for all requests (not to include the yearly Baker to Vegas Donation or other Probation Teams). We will honor requests on a first come first serve basis. Thank you for your understanding.
Special Meetings: The committee can approve drinks, food items and snack items at the request of the Board for board meetings. The committee shall spend no more than $8.00 per person. No alcoholic beverages are allowed.
_________________________________________________________________________- Bereavement: $1,000 per year. Donations from the Union will be a flower arrangement. The amount allocated will be $75 per event. Money may be given to a charity in lieu of flowers.
Members are allowed to ask for no more than a ONE TIME $200 hardship benefit. This request must be made in writing to the committee, and voted upon by them prior to approval.
All donations for bereavement are for immediate family members only and the request can only be made by a member of SBCPOA.
