FOJ Amendment to Bylaws

We're excited to announce a change in our bylaws that we believe we allow us to have more flexability disbursing funds while ensuring we have adaquete operational funds for our future!

Section 6. Solicitations of Donations- Other organizations may submit requests for donations from the FOJPCA. Donations made by FOJPCA must be approved by a majority vote of the Board in attendance during the meeting (minimum five). Additionally, the general fund balance remaining after disbursal of the donation must be no less than $1,000. Criteria for determining a response to the grant request include: whether (1) the FOJPCA has funds available, (2) the request is at least 60 days prior to the event necessitating the funds, (3) the requestor is an established community-based, non-governmental organization, or other philanthropic organization, and, (4) the funds will be used in a way that aligns with the purpose of FOJPCA.
