What is the formal structure of A Home In Community?

A Home in Community is a 501(c)3 status Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation, registered with the State of Oregon. We have a Board of Directors which is responsible for the day-to-day running of the organization, and a Stewardship Council which serves as a balance to the Board’s powers. All members of the Board and Stewardship Council are volunteers. Minutes are kept of all Board and Stewardship Council meetings. These minutes are available to the public upon request, along with our bylaws and all financial reports.

Who is going to safeguard money received?

A Home In Community has a treasurer who receives reports of all financial transactions but cannot personally withdraw money. He works with an independent bookkeeper who has been hired to maintain our financial records. The Treasurer sends a full financial report to the Board and Stewardship Council at least quarterly. These reports are reviewed by the Board and included in our public records.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes! A Home In Community was granted 501(c)3 status in October, 2007. All donations, including those made prior to this determination, are tax-deductible.
