Fundraising Requirements

Fundraisers are an important way for you to raise the assets of your fund and increase the good you can do. If you are planning a fundraiser, you must inform and receive approval from BTCF in advance. We want to help you get the most out of these events and help you follow important IRS regulations.

Your fund must provide written proof of insurance liability coverage listing Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation as an additional insured. No leases or contracts may be established without the approval of the Foundation.

  • Fundraising Checklist [PDF, 70KB] Please review to ensure you have all necessary permits for your event.
  • Fundraising Application [PDF, 124KB]. Please submit your application for approval at least 60 days before the proposed event.

Once BTCF receives your application, we will call you in order to review your event details. Questions? Contact Lisa Mlynarczyk, Finance Associate.
