Charitable Donations, Community Involvement
It is the intention of the Carrabassett Valley Outdoor Association (CVOA) to support local organizations and individuals that reflect the CVOA Mission Statement:
“To foster and promote the conservation of our natural resources and
the creation of recreational opportunities in our region.”
Annually, the Finance Committee will propose budget funds that CVOA may donate to local groups and individuals that support our mission. Donations for activities that benefit the local community can include both cash amounts and expenses.
Additional donations may be approved by the Board for requests for funds for emergency needs.
Donations of up to $250 can be approved by the Finance Committee. Donations in excess of $250 must be approved by the Board of Directors.
Organizations and individuals must meet several criteria to qualify, particularly the following:
They must be established in the state of Maine with activities focused in the Western Mountain area.
They must complete an application form for a project that meets the CVOA mission.
They must submit an “after action report” detailing how the money was spent and who benefitted. A report form will be provided for guidance.
Requests for donations from CVOA may be brought to the officers of the Board at any time by local organizations and individuals, or requests may be submitted by a member of CVOA.
A report of all donations will be included in the CVOA annual report.
