Use Your Fund
Our Finance Office processes checks every Tuesday. They are available for mail and/or pick-up Wednesday afternoon. Requests received before 5 p.m. on Monday will be processed the same week, otherwise they will be included in the check run for the following week.
Once you have decided how you want to distribute your charitable funds, you are ready to make grant recommendations to NVCF. You may submit grant recommendations to the foundation at any time by completing a Grant Request.
Payment of expenses for your fund activities such as advertising, marketing, insurance for events, etc., are requested using the Payment Request. Invoices must be no more than 90 days old. Expense checks relating to your fund will be issued every Wednesday, with occasional exceptions for holidays.
Our designated funds have the added benefit of hosting events under our insurance umbrella.
Events hosted in the name of your NVCF fund must have insurance pre-approval. Complete this form to request coverage and provide us with important information to assure compliance with various laws.
Are you having a fundraising event (including any event that includes the sale of food or goods, or a raffle)? Please review the following guide to rules and laws that pertain to sales tax and raffles in the state of California, as well as disclosure requirements mandated by the IRS.
This guide is designed to familiarize you and your group of volunteers about what rules affect your fundraising efforts, as well as let you know what we need to properly report the results of your work.
Log details of any and all items sold at the fundraising event. We will take care of reporting the sales of taxable items for you and charge your fund for the sales tax expense. But if we don’t get accurate information, our default position is to report all proceeds as taxable. Download and use the following spreadsheets to give us the detail needed and attach substantiation for each category of proceeds received.
