      Just a few reminders regarding fundraising for disasters:

      1) SCA funds may not be raised for or used to benefit specific people.
      Funds for individuals or families of individuals are not valid donation
      destinations for any SCA funds.

      2) SCA branches may raise funds for and donate to any valid registered
      disaster relief organization. The American Red Cross is another
      501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID# 53-0196605). Branch financial committees
      must vote whether and how much to donate. Then they send the donation to
      their local branch of the Red Cross, which can be found by going to
      www.redcross.org. It is possible to designate where you would like your
      donation used. https://www.redcross.org/donation/formprint.html has a
      form to use to print out to accompany the check. It is a good idea to
      keep a copy of the form sent in with the check for the Exchequer's files.

      There are other registered disaster relief organizations - the American
      Red Cross is only one, but it is one of the largest. Branches may choose
      to donate to other valid disaster relief organizations.

      3) As always, fundraisers which do not name the SCA, do clearly identify
      the destination organization or fund, and are conducted as a
      'pass-the-hat' where the money does not go through an SCA account may be
      directed as the donors see fit.

      Our hopes and good wishes are with those in Gleann Abhann affected by
      the hurricane and flooding.
