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).
