Abe offered the minutes for approval. Pat motioned, Shauna seconded.
Don’t anticipate getting Hewlett Foundation 4X matching grant. Thinks that when she is off the board she won’t be able to get the match. Shauna motioned, Patricia seconded. We completed paperwork for conversion from a private foundation to a public charity — this was done to allow company matching funding programs. We have many donors of small amounts, which supports the IRS requirements. Taxes have been prepared. Pat has shared with Abe and Pat. Others can see the tax filing if desired. The account is ready to e-file. No tax will be due this year.
Pat has stepped off the board of MAF after 18 years’ service. We have about $100k there for alpaca research — we “control” how the interest from the account is spent.
Introduction of AOA Executive Director Robin Gifford by Shauna and then self-introduction. Shared ideas for fund-raising for ARF and collaboration on program development and support.
Plan to have Robin present a fund-raising plan and collaboration plan at the April board meeting.
The next meeting will be Monday, April 13, 2020, at 9:00 p.m. EDT.
Adjourned 9:56 p.m. EST.
