Don presented the Treasurer’s report.   He sent $6,000 to Benton County Foundation.   Checking account balance is  $7793.37. Total deposits were $ 383.74. The report was approved as presented.

Old Business:

Don reported that he hasn’t received any grant applications yet.  Deadline is March 31st.  Decisions in April.

Wendy and Vance are completing the fine details on the applications

Norma made motion for approval of the New 2020 calendar. Motion was seconded by Sharon. Calendar was approved as presented.

Lance presented the brochure.  It was beautiful. A minor change to make it easier for people to contact us.

New Business:

Brochure was discussed and the final draft will be sent to the board, and we should vote yes or no asap so they can be printed.

Sharon asked for a clarification on how we decide how much in grants to give out.  Do we give half of the donations that come in or is there a different method.  After discussion, it was agreed that we will continue to stay with original method of keeping half the donation amount received for the year.

Gala:  We discussed whether to have the gala again this year.  We all agreed that the results of reaching new people and informing the community of what our foundation means did not meet our expectations. The Gala will not be held this year. Kathy made Motion and it was seconded by Sharon. Motion passed

Meeting adjourned at 4:00.

Lori will continue next month and we didn’t stay today.

Minutes were taken by Jan in Chenoweth’s absence.

Respectfully submitted,

Jan Schilling
