Current Approved Donation Objectives
- Annual Organizational Operating Costs. Operating costs include website hosting and maintenance, file storage, audit fees, Form 990 filing with IRS, State of Utah 501c3 annual business fee, publication expenses, etc.
- Onsite Genealogy Research. The family has established procedures to determine if onsite research is necessary. Currently, the family genealogist and other family researchers are evaluating the need to travel to England to verify the birthplace of Thomas Tolman and establish his parentage. There are three working theories. If onsite research is required in England there are additional family surnames that could be researched. Great care would be taken to find the best solution between hiring a professional genealogist from the local area or sending volunteer researchers from the family and covering their travel and per diem costs.
- General fund to use wherever funds are most needed. As determined by the Executive Board, donations can be made to a general fund and used for the approved donation objectives with the greatest need.
