14. CHARITY POLICY
Briar Hill Community at large supports many charities by their donations and
volunteer services in the broader community. Fairness and balance in the use of
the Centre is managed by the Board in consideration of the residents at large and
in adherence to the terms of its lease agreement.
a. All Activities and/or Events that wish to book the Centre and provide support
to a charity must have the prior approval of the Board.
b. Only charities that are in support of the local community will be considered.
For example: Alliston Food Bank, Alliston Women’s Shelter. Broader based
charities would not be considered. For example: African Relief, National
Health Campaigns, etc.
c. All Activities and Events must be sponsored and coordinated by a resident.
d. The sponsoring resident is responsible for the Activity and/or Event.
e. Activities and Events are to be for the Briar Hill Community, Green Briar and
their guests and not for the broader community at large.
f. Activities and Events are to be held in accordance with the policies and rules
of the Centre.
g. All Activities and/or Events for charity are requested to contribute to the
expenses of the Centre.
h. All advertising must clearly state that the proceeds after expenses (including
a contribution to the BHCC) will be donated to the selected charity.
i. A full Financial Statement of the Activity or event is to be filed with the Board
to ensure full transparency.
j. The Board will consider limiting the number of charity Activities and Events as
well as the frequency of any one charity being supported.
