You must provide proof of exemption from federal income tax as an organization described in section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.


Programming
You must offer specific health and social welfare services in a prudent and fiscally sound manner to persons in the Gentry school district area.

You must provide, with your application of funds, a financial report and a report of how United Way funds were used in the past year.

Participation
You must be willing to participate in the activities of the United Way of Gentry including helping with the annual fundraising.


Fund Raising Campaigns
The United Way of Gentry provides only operating funds in support of member agencies and does not provide capital funds. However, the United Way recognizes the necessity for agency campaigns to raise funds for purposes considered pressing and important from both the agency's point of view as well as that of the community. Member agencies may not have fund raising campaigns between September 15 and November 15 each year. To waive this policy, a member agency must make a request in writing to the United Way Board.


Notice of Withdrawal
Upon notice of the United Way's intent to fund a member agency, that agency will have 15 days to accept, deny or appeal the allocation. Such notification should be made in writing to the United Way director and received within 15 days. Any agency refusing United Way funding for the purpose of conducting their own public fund raising campaign shall be excluded from funding for that year and the next succeeding year before becoming eligible for future funding.


Violations
The Gentry United Way Board of Directors reserve the right to withhold any or all funding from a member agency found in violation of these policies and procedures.


Amendments
These policies and procedures may be amended with the consent of a majority of the Gentry United Way Board. Amendments to these policies and procedures shall be submitted in writing to the United Way board president, distributed to each board member and placed on the agenda for the next scheduled board meeting.
