V. New Items – Action Required

     A. Review and Discuss Fiscal Agent and Fiscal Sponsor services
The Executive Committee directed the CEO and Treasurer to work on a Fiscal Agency Agreement for The Salvation Foundation.  Upon receiving the Fiscal Agent Agreement from our RAP attorney, we came to the conclusion that we needed specialized input before proceeding with the agreement.  On the recommendation of our Treasurer, an appointment was made to meet with a tax attorney Brian Yacker, YH Advisors in Huntington Beach.  The key points discussed in the 1 hour meeting with Brian, Matt, Eve and Lety are summarized in the meeting notes. (attach 2)

  1. The Committee will need to discuss and decide if RAP should offer to serve as a Fiscal Agent or Fiscal Sponsor to entities as a regular “marketed” service and what are steps need to be taken starting with making a recommendation to the Board for consideration.
  2. How to respond to The Salvation Foundation request? Should we continue as a “case by case basis” with this request, or wait until a decision by the board is made?

            Motion:             Second:                 Approved:               Opposed:          Abstention Name(s):

 B. Request to be an Inland Empire Funders Alliance (IEFA) member.

PURPOSE:  The Funders Alliance is a collaborative network of organizations with significant formal grantmaking activities in the Inland Empire region of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties that have joined together to increase communication, coordination, and collaboration.

MISSION:  To advance equity, advocacy, and systemic change in the Inland Empire by uplifting the region’s assets and opportunities, and leveraging resources for impact.

The RAP CEO has been a member of IEFA for over 5 years. The “Alliance” has been working towards formalizing the entity with gaining firm commitments for work assignments, such as participating in committees, and membership fees. The fees demonstrate “buy in” as well as generating revenue to sustain the administrative work needed to continue the work. Up until now The California Endowment and Weingart Foundation have been to main contributors for the cost of staff time. Based on the Dues Structure, RAP’s annual fee would be $2,500.
