The PineBelt Foundation’s mission is to maximize philanthropy and to support projects that are truly charitable. Therefore, the PineBelt Foundation may choose to provide fiscal and project sponsorships for charitable projects that further the purpose and mission of the Foundation.
Sponsorship services include the provision of non-profit status to a project (making contributions tax-deductible), the receipting and managing of contributions, and the authorization and payment of grants and expenses form the fund created for the project.
The primary beneficiaries of sponsorship services are typically new charities without 501(c)(3) status and community groups planning a specific or finite project that is clearly charitable in nature and in furtherance of the charitable purposes of the PineBelt Foundation.
