GRANT FUNDING CONDITIONS:

It is mutually understood and agreed that River Fund, Inc. will be given prompt written notice of any material change in the Program and that grant funding will be utilized and restricted for the sole purpose of funding the Program for which River Fund Board of Directors has given its approval. Furthermore, you represent to River Fund, Inc. that the Program is in alignment with the purposes of your organization as stated in its Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, that  there  are  no  applicable  restrictions in  those  documents, and that you will provide (or have already provided) to River Fund, Inc. copies of those documents with all current amendments, if any. Any portion of the grant funding that is not used for the restricted purposes (or which is used to at any time directly or indirectly support, sustain, or benefit any purposes other than those listed in your grant application without River Fund, Inc. written approval to do so) must be remitted back to River Fund, Inc.

None of the grant funding is to be used for any private benefit, political campaign, or carrying on propaganda or otherwise attempting to influence legislation.

It is our understanding that your organization is a 501(c)(3) corporation and 509(a)(1) or 509(a)(2) public charity and we will promptly be notified and consulted if the Program sponsorship arrangements change. It is further understood that any future sponsor will also be a tax-exempt organization and public charity of the same classification.

The unused portion of the grant funding will be withdrawn if at any time your organization’s or any future sponsor’s tax-exempt or public charity status with IRS is terminated and may be withdrawn at the discretion of River Fund, Inc. if there are any claims, charges, or investigations of alleged fraud, misrepresentation, crime, or regulatory infraction pertaining to the Program, your organization, or its principals or affiliates.

Another condition of grant funding includes a requirement that any external communications and publicity relating to the Program must include a standard public statement such as the following or another mutually agreeable similar statement: “This (Program name) is funded as a result of generous financial support from River Fund, Inc. which is an Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization whose mission is to provide programs and services that result in positive outcomes from unexpected hardships." Any public news releases or printed materials including the name of River Fund, Inc. in stated text which would deviate from the sample standard public statement must be reviewed and approved by River Fund, Inc. prior to submission to the media or printer. Please provide River Fund, Inc. with copies of all Program related news releases, media articles, newsletters, and brochures.
