5. Benevolent Fund
Effective July 2, 2023 all donations directed to the Benevolent Fund will be redirected to
the General Fund until further notice. The Benevolent Fund is a fund disbursed for
circumstances of special needs, through application to the Elder Board. As of May 31,
2023, the account balance is at $43,800. Unlike the general fund where amounts can be
reallocated to other funds at the discretion of the Elder Board, amounts in the
Benevolent fund cannot be reallocated. Given the gradual growth of this fund and the
pace that amounts have been disbursed, the Elder Board has decided to pause
collection for this fund. Please direct any questions to Elder Herman Mo, Treasurer.
