ARTICLE I

PURPOSES

The purposes of the club are primarily for social, hobby, and education relative to farm machinery and its history. Club membership is open to anyone interested in this purpose. Club activities will typically be in the Illinois/Iowa Quad Cities area. The club encourages, supports, and educates the youth of today through programs like “Young Hands” and the donation of “ag-related books” programs with any budgetary requirements to be reviewed annually by the sitting Board of Directors. Scholarships will be provided to qualified applicants. The number of and dollar amount of said scholarships will be decided by the sitting Board of Directors, after a review of club finances. The club will nevertheless have unlimited power to engage in and to do any lawful act concerning any and all lawful purposes under the Iowa Nonprofit Corporation Act, Iowa Code Chapter 504A.

 

The club shall be operated for those purposes allowed as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c) (7) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) and its regulations as they now exist or as they may hereafter be amended. Any revenue collected by the club will be compliant with the regulations related to Section 501 (c) (7). In general, revenue collected will be related to membership dues, group social activities, or other activities related to awareness or promotion of the hobby of preservation, restoration of farm machinery, or public education related to farm mechanization or its history.

 

The club is not organized for profit, and no part of the net earnings of the club shall be distributed to, or inure to the benefit of, any director or officer of the club, contributor, or private individual either during the existence of this club or upon its dissolution. No substantial part of the activities of this club shall be to carry on propaganda or otherwise attempt to influence legislation, and the club shall not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of any candidate for public office.

In the event of liquidation or dissolution of the club, whether voluntary or involuntary, the assets of the club received from any source whatsoever, after payment of all debts and obligations of the club, shall be used or distributed, subject to the laws of the State of Iowa, exclusively for the purposes of the club in such manner, or to such organization or organizations organized and operated exclusively for public education or social/hobby activities related to farm mechanization or its history as the Board of Directors shall determine.
