Family to Family Network Policies and Procedures
The Policies and Procedures contain the essential guidelines for those who will be associated with the Family to Family Network. Network Leaders and Staff will be informed of any changes to these policies and procedures in writing. These guidelines are intended to help simplify, improve and build our organization, and provide continuity across the Network.
Accepting Donations – Use of the UPC Nonprofit Status
The Utah Parent Center is happy to help Network Leaders use its non-profit status to solicit private donations from their communities. We do however ask all Leaders to be transparent about their fundraising activities by giving the Center advance notice of upcoming fundraising plans and obtaining permission to use the Center’s non-profit status prior to seeking donations. The following link titled “Accepting and Accounting for Donations” will detail the steps necessary for the use of the UPC’s nonprofit status. Also contained is a letter which can be given to potential donors explaining the relationship between the Family to Family Network and the Utah Parent Center. A copy of the UPC’s 501(c)(3)’s determination letter granting the organization’s exemption from federal income tax is also included. Please be sure to ask if you have any questions.
Guidelines for Becoming a Network
The Family to Family Network is looking to expand its statewide Network. New Network Leaders should be receiving services,on the waiting list,or in the process of determining eligibility with the Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD). This allows Leaders to be a resource for individuals and families using these services as well as for other organizations. Networks may have Leaders or other officers who do not meet the criteria related to DSPD. New Leaders will receive ongoing support from the Utah Parent Center and existing Network Leaders.
