Donor Recognition Policy

Kenmure Fights Cancer has three policies relative to donations and participation in our events. They are listed in full at the bottom of this page.

Policy 1 gives our model and states that events are separate and donations to one do not entitle the donor to participation in any other. We can, however, develop a package for tax deductible portions of events upon request.  

Policy 2 states that persons who donate $500 or more in a given year will be named "Ambassadors" and will be invited to attend the annual Check Presentation Luncheon (at their own expense).
  • 2018 Check Presentation Luncheon will be on Friday, October 5 at 12:00 pm.

Policy 3 states that 
  • It is our policy to keep donations to the Honor Board private within Kenmure. 
  • However, the hospitals do have recognition programs. 
  • In 2017, we developed a joint program whereby the hospitals will recognize our donors of $500 or more in the same manner as those who made direct contributions to the hospital.
    • Donors of $500 or more (who wish to be recognized) will have their names on plaques as are other donors to the hospitals.
    • Each Kenmure Fights Cancer donor will receive recognition for their full donation at both hospitals.
    • The hospitals would also take turns hosting a small reception in honor of these very generous contributors. 

      • In 2017, Pardee kicked off this program. This year it is Park Ridge's turn.

      • 2018 Donor Recognition Reception Friday, September 13 at 4:00 pm at Park Ridge Health. 
  • You will be contacted for permission before we share your contact information with either hospital.

Policy 1. Combining Projects/Events for Donors:

  • A.    Our model is to have several smaller events rather than one large one. Each event stands alone, with participants purchasing admission to events and/or making a donation.
a.     Cash Donations: If a donor wishes to combine his/her desired projects/events into a single donation, a package can be developed. The donation will be tax deductible, except for the cost of goods or services.
b.     Donations in Kind: Gratefully accepted for projects such as raffles, silent auctions, etc. These offerings do not, regardless of value, entitle the donor to participate in other projects/events at reduced cost or cost free.

Approved by Board of Directors, June 5, 2017

Policy 2: Kenmure Fights Cancer Ambassadors

  • The Kenmure Fights Cancer Ambassadors group (previously known as Ambassador’s Club) was formed to recognize individuals who donate $500 or more in any given year.  They are invited to attend the Check Presentation Luncheon (at their own expense) and presented with a certificate.

Approved by Board of Directors, August 3, 2017

Policy 3 – Publication of Donations

  • A.    Individuals and/or their personal foundations: Kenmure Fights Cancer does not publish amounts of donations from individual contributors. This is done to encourage contributions of all sizes and to maintain the community spirit of the organization.
a.  Exceptions:
i.     Kenmure Fights Cancer Ambassadors: Membership may be published, but not the amount donated.
ii.     Beneficiaries (hospitals or others): The beneficiaries may recognize donors in any way they see fit, if agreed to by both parties.
  • B.    Corporations: Donations by Sponsors and/or other corporate entities may be published unless otherwise indicated by the donor.
