Old Business:

New Business:

 

Fundraising discussion:                                                                                                                                   

How to proceed while IRS approval/review is pending.

 

Need for a checking account:                                                                                                                         

Our financial institution President has advised us of the need to consider/pass a resolution to allow a checking account to more easily and legally handle our monies.

 

Business Card/Stationary Discussion:                                                                                                       

We should all have business cards as well as form stationery for official business.

 

Name change?                                                                                                                                           

Possibility of IRS requiring us to alter or change the name of our organization due to other, now active Roy Williams foundations discovered to be in existence, (one was inactive during cursory search, the other just surfaced) they are both inner city organizations. One is the RWF “Safety Net Foundation” for single parents, based in Texas.  The other is a youth educational organization based in North Carolina.

 

Our new name could be: “Roy Williams Veterans Outreach Organization”. Or something similar; or a complete re-brand. This discussion is considered “Contingency planning” at this stage.

 

We can make contact with these organizations pre-emptively to determine their level of concern with similar names. If the Board determines that to be the best approach.
