You may never get it P1. It doesn't matter which account any of the funds are in, anywhere on the planet earth, today or in perpetuity throughout the universe. Its never been one man's decision in the first place. The original board of directors (Gay, Becky, Ernie, Karin, I think) were asked by several members to consider and resolve to file the 501c3 application. They voted and it passed. No one ever complained until now when you suggested (I deleted "demanded") money for the fruit lady. The corporation is tightly organized and should be to maintain integrity as to where and when and whom the funds will benefit. Everyone who either donated or whatever knew the application was pending for some time now. Many of the same members who wanted the exempt status are still asking if it is granted because they want to deduct whatever pittance they can for their donations. Why don't you ask SAGA or the Lions to give you some money so you can give it to whomever you please? The SPSC can't do it, just like TQ and Ernie said, Period. Either you are acting dumb or you are really thick or really bored or have no dumbass touristas to hassel. Doesn't matter because the bylaws and the pending application under IRC 501c3 determine the use of the funds in very strict and precise terms. This has all been explained much better by others, so do a search if you need to.
