Ada Township accounting firm Echelbarger, Himebaugh, Tamm & Co. held its 26th Annual Chipping for Charity golf outing at Scott Lake Country Club this fall. The $10,400 raised at the event went to the Hospice of Michigan James B. Fahner M.D. Pediatric Hospice Care Program.
Now, EHTC is accepting letters from anyone in the community who wants to nominate a particular nonprofit or charity to be the recipient of EHTC’s 2013 fundraiser. The deadline for nominating an organization is Jan. 31.
Some guidelines EHTC will use in selecting a nonprofit charity are:
- The money would significantly impact the charity.
- The money would stay locally.
- EHTC would be permitted to send charity donors and volunteers invitations to the fundraiser.
- The organization would participate in the event through its volunteers, etc.
To nominate an organization, submit the following information about the potential recipient in order to be considered: most recent annual financial statements; copy of Form 990; literature explaining what the organization does; board of directors listing; how the money would be used; whether EHTC can send invitations to people on the organization’s mailing list; if/how many of the organization’s volunteers would be willing to participate (6-8 typically required).
Submit the information to Diane Friar, EHTC, 5136 Cascade Road SE, Suite 2A, Grand Rapids, MI 49546. For more information, contact her at (616) 575-3482 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the past 26 years, EHTC has raised more than $230,000 to help support local charities. EHTC chooses a different local charity each year as the recipient of their annual Chipping for Charity Golf Outing.
