UNION TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES ADOPT POLICY TO DONATE PROPERTY TO NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
(Posted by: Paula Greene, Township Administrator – 3/22/2011)
The Ohio Revised Code authorizes the Union Township Board of Trustees to dispose of unneeded, obsolete, or unfit for the purpose for which it was acquired personal property valued at $2,500.00 or less through donations to eligible nonprofit organizations. The Board intends to donate such Township personal property as provided in Union Township Resolution Number 2011-04.
A current list of items to be donated to eligible nonprofit organizations may be found at the Union Township office/hall throughout the year.
The Board has adopted the following terms and conditions for the donation program:
All nonprofit organizations desiring to obtain donated property from the Township shall submit a written notice to the Township Administrator at the following address: 1380 Beaver Run Road, P.O. Box 1208, Hebron, OH 43025.
The nonprofit organization’s written notice shall include evidence that the organization is a nonprofit that is located in Ohio and is exempt from federal taxation pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 501(a) and (c)(3); a description of the organization’s primary purpose; a description of the type or types of property the organization needs; and the name, address, and telephone number of a person designated by the organization’s governing board to receive donated property and to serve as its agent.
The Township Administrator shall maintain a list of all eligible nonprofit organizations that notify the Township of their desire to obtain donated property.
A list of all Township property available for donation will be maintained and posted continually in a conspicuous place in the Township’s office/hall.
An item of property on the list shall be donated to the eligible nonprofit organization that first declares to the Township Administrator its desire, in writing, to obtain the item.
