How to create a Gift of Life Affiliate Program

How do we begin a Gift of Life affiliate program?

A founding committee needs to be formed. This is a group of people who ideally represent several Rotary clubs that are interested in forming a new program. It is most helpful to include an attorney, accountant, and financial advisor in creating the program so that legal, record-keeping, and money-handling issues are properly addressed.

What legal issues need to be addressed?

  1. The first action is to file for incorporation in your State, and then for IRS approval of your 501c3 status
  2. Simultaneously, by-laws need to be prepared by the Founding Committee. Gift of Life International can provide template by-laws as a guideline
  3. A business checking account needs to be established early, even before your program is approved by the IRS as a 501c3. Signatories typically are the committee chair and treasurer.
  4. Keep in mind that any contributions are not tax deductible until you receive your IRS 501c3 status.

How can we solicit support for our program?

  1. The ideal Gift of Life Committee is populated by any individual dedicated to the Gift of Life Mission including, but not limited to, Rotarians who represent their respective Rotary Clubs. Many Rotary Districts include as members of the Committee the current District Governor, District Governor Elect, District Governor Nominee and Past District Governors.
  2. Your by-laws need to stipulate the composition of your trustees and voting responsibilities. However, the committee should be open to anyone who is dedicated to the Gift of Life mission. The interactive discussions generate enthusiasm and allows for all opinions to be voiced.
