The Club Foundation, Inc., was formed in February 2010 by interested Members of Congressional Country Club who sought to provide a means for giving back to the community in times of need. As stated in the Foundation’s Application for Exemption filed with the Internal Revenue Service, which has granted the Foundation tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, the Foundation intends, consistent with it Articles of Incorporation, to provide disaster relief and emergency hardship assistance to individuals, and their immediate family members, who are employed by, or affiliated with, or who reside in or near Congressional Country Club.
The Foundation’s Board intends to focus on personal relief efforts directed to filling the need or possible void caused by an unexpected calamity resulting in the tragic death or severe incapacitation of an individual or in meeting the economic challenges caused due to battling illness, disease or natural disasters such as fire or storm. Consideration will also be given, as appropriate and funds permitting, to providing financial assistance for family members of a deceased or severely incapacitated individual so as to permit him or her to continue with his or her education.
Consistent with these goals, the Foundation’s primary focus will be on assessing that a proposed recipient is financially in need. Thus, before undertaking any form of assistance, the Foundation’s Board will, unless the need is so immediate as to preclude and otherwise obviate the need for any in depth analysis of how best to be of help, document the scope of needed assistance and its term so as to insure that the Foundation’s assets are wisely used in fulfillment of its goals.
