Indeed, the MGO will often be able to conclude the gift agreement without help. However, regardless of the size of the gift obligation or the ease of the agreement, it is essential that the charity identify a person in the organization who verifies and approves all gift agreements. When accepting gifts from donors, it is essential to consider the underlying laws and principles governing these gift agreements. Donation agreements may be available orally, in writing, only implicitly on the basis of the form and content of an advertisement for donors, or not at all. Many gifts are given by donors who have no contact with the PNR, the only proof of their intention to contribute is manifested by the receipt of a single cheque, an online payment or a donation of money. In some cases where these are typically large and complex contributions and pledges and where trust or agency agreements are involved, NPFs and donors enter into written gift instruments to recall the terms of the gift and ensure mutual understanding. It is also understood and agreed that the funds received may be invested by a third party who best determines the investment opportunities of this fund (see point #4 below). The Foundation`s spending policy will be the guideline defined and approved by your organization`s board of directors, which likely only provides for the use of annual savings income and will not enter into the Fund`s capital in order to preserve and maintain growth.
