We’re YOUR mission in the Twin Cities

Gift acceptance policies and guidelines

The Board of Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities has approved the following gift acceptance policies and guidelines. The purpose of these policies and guidelines is as follows:

  1. To protect the interests of the donor and of Union Gospel Mission.
  2. To make certain all gifts to Union Gospel Mission are structured to provide maximum benefits to the donor and to Union Gospel Mission.
  3. To encourage interested donors to make gifts without encumbering their own or Union Gospel Mission’s financial or other resources.
  4. To optimize opportunities to secure gifts for Union Gospel Mission without compromising or endangering the reputation of Union Gospel Mission.

Union Gospel Mission will accept unrestricted gifts, and gifts for specific programs and purposes, provided that such gifts are not inconsistent with its stated mission, purposes, and priorities. Union Gospel Mission may choose not to accept certain gifts for several reasons, including that the gift is too restrictive in purpose or difficult to administer, or gifts are for purposes outside the mission of Union Gospel Mission. The Gift Acceptance Committee of Union Gospel Mission shall make all final decisions on the restrictive nature of a gift, and its acceptance or refusal.
