5 depending on resource availability and other relevant factors. 6. All funds established on behalf of the Affiliate are the property of ICF, which shall have discretion and control over the investment, management and use of funds consistent with the charitable purpose of both ICF and the Affiliate. Upon becoming an ICF Affiliate, three initial funds shall be established with a minimum of $5,000 deposit for the Affiliate Endowment Fund at signing of this agreement. a. Affiliate Endowment Fund: a permanent fund in which only a small portion (historically 5%) of the fund s average balance is available for distribution each year. Contributions to this fund shall be unrestricted to offer the Affiliate Advisory Board flexibility in grant making. Challenge grants are based on contributions to this fund. b. Affiliate Non-Endowed Fund: non-endowed fund in which the entire fund balance is available for distribution. Contributions to this fund may be either restricted or unrestricted, and may be used for local grant making and special projects as recommended by the Affiliate Advisory Board. c. Affiliate Administrative Fund: non-endowed fund in which the entire fund balance is available for distribution. Contributions to this fund will be used to support day-to-day operational activities of the Affiliate. d. Affiliate funds will be charged ICF s standard Affiliate management fees (see table below) These fees align with the costs associated with providing training, administrative support, communications support, donor information management, financial and grant management provided to the Affiliate by ICF. ICF Management Fee Affiliate Endowment Funds $5,000 to $499,999 5% per annum $500,000 to $999, % per annum $1,000, % per annum Affiliate Non-Endowed Fund 1% per annum Affiliate Administrative Fund 1% per annum e. In the future, the Affiliate or their donors may be interested in establishing additional funds to support the geographic service area and be associated with the Affiliate. The Affiliate shall contact the ICF development officer for assistance. 7. The Affiliate Advisory Board shall have no authority to, and shall not, assume or create any obligation or responsibility, implied or expressed, on behalf of or in the name of ICF, and shall not bind itself or ICF in any matter whatsoever, except as previously authorized in writing by ICF. ICF Affiliate Agreement Page 5

6 8. To avoid confusions and misunderstandings, ICF wishes to ensure that all donors, potential donors and stakeholders understand the Affiliates are part of ICF, and that their operations are subject to the supervision and control of ICF. Therefore: a. The Affiliate must use the logo and website provided by ICF, rather than develop their own logo and brand; b. All written communication describing an Affiliate, soliciting funds for an Affiliate and/or to be identified with an Affiliate, or encouraging public involvement with an Affiliate, shall clearly state that the Affiliate is a project or program of the Idaho Community Foundation; and c. ICF reserves the right to approve, and if necessary revise, written communications as defined above to ensure they are appropriately informative regarding the role of the Affiliate, and otherwise reflect the ICF mission and policies. 9. In the event the Affiliate Advisory Board is no longer functioning (i.e. not meeting at least four times a year, has not made grant recommendations for a period of three years), the ICF Board of Directors shall: a. Recruit a new Advisory Board made up of local community members to serve as a replacement; or b. Nominate the appropriate ICF Regional Grants Panel to make annual grant recommendations, if a replacement Advisory Board cannot be recruited. Distributions from the fund will be restricted to organizations and projects within the Affiliate s geographic service area. 10. ICF intends that all of its Affiliates will remain an active part of ICF permanently. If in the future an Affiliate Advisory Board wishes to become independent, the ICF Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, shall decide whether to allow the transfer of funds. Affiliates shall discuss with ICF staff if they are interested in exercising this option. 11. In order to adapt to changing circumstances or respond to new issues or opportunities, specific terms of this agreement may be modified by mutual agreement of the Affiliate Advisory Board and ICF Board of Directors. The effective date of the Affiliate shall be the date of this fully executed agreement with receipt of $5,000 pledged and/or contributed and accepted by ICF. All parties agree to and accept the conditions within this agreement. ICF Affiliate Agreement Page 6
