Stepping Stone Support Fundraising Guidelines

We thank you for your interest in Stepping Stone Support (SSS) and its mission, and for your dedication to raising money to support men and women affected by cancer and infertility. The following guidelines have been developed as a tool to help you with your project and help you understand how Stepping Stone Support staff can provide for you.

Comply with and be bound by the policies and standards of Stepping Stone Support and comply with all applicable Federal and State laws:

As a condition of using Stepping Stone Supports’s name, logo, 501(c) (3) tax exemption, literature, and services, all funds raised less reasonable expenses are the property of Stepping Stone Support and should be delivered to SSS by the individual in charge of the event (30) days after the fund-raising event.

Also, submit a detailed financial accounting of the event, including bank statements, gross income, net income, expense, and any in-kind donations;

Advertise clearly on all materials related to the fundraiser that all proceeds are raised by the organization in support of Stepping Stone Support, which is designated for helping men and women affected by cancer and infertility.

Please maintain regular contact with the staff at Stepping Stone Support on the progress of the event.

Anyone wishing to approach national or international businesses and foundations to solicit funds or grants should coordinate with Renee Lynn Scott, Executive Director, to avoid duplication of effort.

Tax Receipts: Donations received at SSS will be issued tax receipts according to generally accepted policies. If you are depositing checks within your event account, you can submit a list of names, addresses, and the amount to SSS, and the paperwork will be taken care of for you. If you wish to send your receipts along with your thank you letters, please check with SSS to ensure you follow the guidelines.
