From time to time, the AVCA Board may consider giving a grant for a project consistent with the mission of the AVCA.
External unsolicited grant requests will generally not be considered.
The following are guidelines that the AVCA Board has adopted.
Grants should not leave the AVCA Treasury with less than the amount projected for continuous operation of AVCA for three years without further income.
A minimum of 30 days should elapse between a request for a grant, internal or external, and an agreement to grant the request.
The grant should be for an activity in the Almaden Valley, and the activity should stay in the Almaden Valley.
Ideally, the grant is for a one-time project, and a separate grant is required for any renewal.
The funds for the grant should be expressed as up to a stated number of dollars.
The AVCA Treasurer will directly pay the expenses for the proposed project up to the total amount agreed upon as a grant.
The AVCA Board will be advised monthly, by the Treasurer, as to the progress of payments.
