|FISCAL SPONSOR FOR CENTER|
ARTS COUNCIL TO SPONSOR CENTER 7-16-14 LMS
In order to apply for and receive grants the Sacajawea Center has to have a 501 c 3 status fiscal sponsor. The center was originally sponsored by Salmon Valley Stewardship and then by the Lemhi County Economic Development Association. Center Director Lin Grey told the July 16 meeting of the Salmon City Council that the Salmon Arts Council has agreed to take on the fiscal sponsorship and has features in place that will serve the center well. She presented a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Arts Council for the councilís approval.
In her MOU presentation Grey pointed out that the Salmon Arts Council has a process established for receiving on-line donations and also has a membership data base which will be helpful.
Following a discussion that tracked the money handling process involved, the council unanimously approved the arrangement and the MOU.
According to a report by Sacajawea Center Team Chairman Fred Waidely, during the teamís last meeting it had recommended council approval of the Arts Council sponsorship. He said the team also proposed that all entry fees at the Sacajawea Center be waived during Heritage Days. The recommendation will be passed to the City Council.
In past years the Council has approved Tribal Camping privileges on the center grounds in return for tribal member participation and attendance at the Heritage Days event. The team recommended that the same offer be made this year.
Waidely said there are still some grounds maintenance needs at the center and Director Grey said she expects to have some additional help within a week or so. He said the team noted many improvements in the appearance of the grounds over the last few weeks.
The next meeting of the Sacajawea Team is August 13 at 4:15PM.
