FINANCIAL AID CHARITY COMMITTEE EVALUATION PROCEDURES

It is the policy of the Southern Cruisers to provide financial aid to deserving individuals with medical related problems without regard to any legally protected status such as race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.

THE CHARITY SELECTION COMMITTEE is appointed by the Board of Directors.  Applicants’ personal, financial, and medical data will be guarded and kept confidential. Any public use of the applicants’ data will be approved by the applicant before being made public.

The committee will secure applicants from various sources such as: civic organizations, churches, medical facilities, doctors, club membership knowledge, government and non-government agencies, social workers, etc. Once an applicant is known, a APPLICATION FOR AID form will be initiated.

The committee will review each application and schedule an initial personal or electronic interview. Within the initial interviews, the committee will secure a signed FINANCIAL AND MEDICAL RELEASE FORM from the applicant.

Under the authority of the signed FINANCIAL AND MEDICAL RELEASE FORM, the committee will contact relative sources to gain additional data concerning the applicant’s medical and financial status. These sources include, but are not limited to: primary and secondary doctors, government and non-government agencies, utility companies, landlords, financial institutions, etc.

On a regular basis, the committee will evaluate the applicants to determine the ones with the most deserving and urgent needs. In conjunction with the club Treasurer, available funding will be determined. This available funding along with the applicant’s needs will determine what recommendations the committee will make to the club membership.

Based on available funding and the needs of the applicants, the committee will present the applicant’s story and needs to the club membership at one of their regularly scheduled meetings.

The committee will only use data that is approved by the applicant for public knowledge.

A majority vote of the membership is required to adopt the committee’s recommendations.
