Requests for Support

Oct, 2015

Dear Community Organization,

The purpose of this letter is to inform organizations within our community about legislation concerning receiving support from our Township.  (Please see the attached Contributions and Donations Policy).  Effective immediately, if your organization is requesting support from Schroeder Township for calendar year 2017, please fill out the forms and mail/email them to the clerk’s office by Jan. 11, 2016.  Any requests received after Jan. 11th will be considered on a case by case basis if it is determined that the organization’s circumstances are reasonable in their inability to meet the Jan 11th deadline.  The Board of Supervisors will review the requests at their Jan 12th meeting and present them to the resident’s at the Annual Meeting in March.  The State places many restrictions on township appropriations, so the Board must review all requests for support prior to presenting them to the residents.

Please Mail requests to: Schroeder Township PO Box 60 Schroeder, MN 55613 or Email requests to:   schroedertownship@gmail.com

 

If your organization type is in the following table, a Request for Support Form needs to be completed with your request letter and other pertinent documentation.  In addition, if your organization is a nonprofit providing social, recreational, or health services (MN statute 365.10, subd.14) you are required to fill out and sign the Nonprofit Donation Contract and send the contract and applicable proof of insurance with your request.  If your organization type is not in the following table, the township may not be able to support your organization.  Minnesota Statutes would need to be researched further.
