Motions

PGK Bruce Rago made the following motion:

“To allow recurring disbursements out of the Charity Budget and/or the Charitable Giving Plan, even in monthly amounts above the maximum amount allowed in accordance with ARTICLE VII Section 3 of the Council By-Laws, as exclusively and specifically pertaining to the NET proceeds of the Monthly Breakfast fundraisers, by check made out to the St. John Neumann Catholic Church, for the benefit of Ministries of SJN. The beneficiaries may be chosen by the Grand Knight in consultation with our Pastor and Chair of the Event, at any time during the Fraternal Year, whether already specified in the budget and/or the Charitable Giving Plan.”

The motion was tabled for discussion.

PGK Bruce Rago made the following motion:

“To cap the authority of the Charity Committee, as well as that of the Grand Knight and/or Board of Trustees, to disburse funds out of the Charity Budget and/or the Charitable Giving Plan at the maximum amount allowed in accordance with ARTICLE VII Section 3 of the Council By-Laws, when there isn’t any specific line item present for said disbursement in the Budget and/or the Charitable Giving Plan. Separate disbursements, each below or up to the aforementioned maximum allowed amount, cannot be combined to fund this item as this would circumvent the purpose of this motion.”

The motion was voted down 17-4.
