All requests for contributions must be reviewed by a Contributions Review Committee, and must be submitted in writing. Certain guidelines must be followed to even be considered. Some are required by law, others are set by the club. The committee meets at least once a month to review every request to:
a) determine the validity,
b) suggest the amount to be given, and
c) which fund, gambling or activity, from which the money will be taken.
The committee reports to the Board of Directors at the monthly Board Meeting where the Board reviews every request and presents their suggestions. The ultimate approval of the request and the amount lies with the Board.
