The Board of Trustees meets at least annually to do the business of the Foundation and fulfill the philanthropic goals of the Foundation. Annual grants are made to other organizations that meet the description in Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The organizations which are intended for support include those whose purposes are principally charitable, educational and religious. Support of religious organizations is limited to those organizations whose beliefs and tenets are compatible with the Christian beliefs and moral values of Jerry D. Routh and Cheryl Sawatzke Routh. The Foundation may also support organizations with scientific or other purposes, however, such support is considered to be of secondary importance. Scholarship grants to individuals may be made, but such grants are of secondary importance to the Foundation. The Foundation does not solicit proposals or requests.
The Foundation exercises responsibility with respect to grants to 501(d)(3) organizations by confirming that the grant is spent solely for the exempt purpose for which it is made, by obtaining full and complete reports from the grantee organization on expenditures and by making full reports to the Internal Revenue Service. A 990-PF is filed with the IRS under EIN 30-0108286 and the Foundation is registered with the Nevada Secretary of State.
