Anyone know what the rules are for 501C organizations?  What do they have to file with the IRS.  What happens if they are misusing 'non-profit' funds for personal use?  Should this information get turned over to authorities? 

I think this needs further investigation. Make sure you know, and I mean really know, the people you're working with.  There are crooks out there disguised as good parents taking your money and using it for their personal needs and not for non-profit fundraising.  It will all come out in time and some of the players will surprise and shock you - it's disgusting how they take advantage of others by lying and stealing.  Karma.  Do you hear me?  K-A-R-M-A....

Library Split the Pot Raffle

The Monroe Lending Library is sponsoring a Split-the Pot Raffle. Tickets are $1.00 each and can be purchased at the library, from library volunteers or by calling Judy Mann at 539-2158.  The drawing will be held during the Library's grand opening in the summer of 2011. The Library's goal is to sell 5,000 tickets.  This means the winner would win $2,500 and the Library would get $2,500. Proceeds will benefit the Library's building operating expenses.  Winner need not be present to win.
We are asking that all volunteers help with the selling of the tickets.  They are in bundles of 25.  Each ticket is $1.00 and our goal is to sell 5,000 tickets.
The drawing will be held in August at our grand opening.
