1. The Desire of the Donor is Paramount
The desire of each donor with respect to his or her gift shall at all times be meticulously observed by CTCA to every extent practicable.
2. To Honor an Individual
Any gift or bequest may. be named in honor of the donor or anyone he or she may wish to choose.
3. Unrestricted Gifts
The CTCA welcomes unrestricted gifts and bequests. The wise trusteeship of unrestricted gifts gives the CTCA Board of Governors maximum flexibility to adjust readily to changing future needs and conditions in the CTCA's service to the Cairn Terrier breed.
4. Restricted Gifts
Gifts and bequests may be restricted by a donor for use in any specific area or program of the CTCA, including, but not limited to research, education, or specific projects. Where a donor wishes to place a restriction upon the use of his or her gift or bequest for a specific program, it is suggested that the legal instrument empower the CTCA, after a certain number of years (such as 5, 10, on 15), to evaluate the restriction, and, if the original purpose for which the gift was made is no longer relevant, to redesignate its purpose to an appropriate alternate use.
Donors may wish to consider gifts to the Foundation of the Cairn Terrier Club of America, which is a separate organization from the CTCA. The CTCA Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation organized under §501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The CTCA Foundation funds a variety of research and educational programs involving the Cairn Terrier Breed. Donations to the Foundation are generally tax-deductible to the donor.
All information concerning donors or prospective donors, including their name, the names of their beneficiaries, and the amount and nature of their gift, shall be kept strictly confidential by the CTCA unless the donor wishes to release such information.
