Charitable Donations/Sponsorship Policy
Verduyn Tarps Board of Directors encourages and supports projects and activities which strengthen the communities in which our employees live and work, improve the environment in which Verduyn Tarps does business and enhance the company's opportunities to prosper and grow
What is a Donation / Sponsorship?
A donation / sponsorship is defined as a gift or contribution, as to a cause, without seeking any benefits in exchange.
Donations differ from sponsorships in that they do not deliver business benefits or provide any real return benefit to the funding organization, Verduyn Tarps.
For the purpose of this policy a "non-profit community organization" is defined as any non-profit group, agency or service whose primary aims are to improve the quality of life to sections of the community or provide targeted welfare or other support.
