Default Paul

One of the things I saw on the obituary was the request for donations to go to a favorite charity. I ask you to vote whether or not SAOCA will send one. It's the Club's money so vote. In the notes section post the amount you'd be comfortable with. $100-$500.

How do you get to the "Note Section" ?

I'd vote for $100

DanR

P.S> I made a reply to the original post as: PAul, I've just arrived back home from the UNITED XXXVI in VA. Haven't seen the OB!

Where is it available? What Organization?

As for what the Board wants, please advise....give me some vote numbers and include the amount, if we approve a contact point/mail address etc., perhaps sent to the family for their presentation?

Is this a one time thing for Paul or will it apply to all future deaths?

I vote for a $100 donation from the club.

Just for a bit of perspective, according to GuideStar.org, the organization Young Life Foundation has an annual budget over 10 Million and appears to have had $40 Million in 2008, the last year of their available form 990... The reason I note this is in relation to the amount of our donation... an organization of their financial standing won't see a significant impact if we give anything under approximately 10K. In no way am I suggesting we donate to another organization, this is what Paul and his family wanted and it should be honored.

Bill raises an interesting question, maybe we'd like a policy or guideline?

Best to all from smokey NorCal

I like to think all our members contribute to SAOCA but Paul was a signicant force. I think it would be a small gesture of recognizing his contribution.

It's no secret that the core of people in our hobby are aging faster than younger people are entering. Future Boards and membership will need to make a decision to post a poll like this down the road. If this idea isn't supported by the membership we won't do it.

As far as the charity selected by the family in lieu of flowers, I would respect their wishes, if we choose to do something.

$100 seems good, and it should definitely go to the charity indicated by the family.
