The Mission of the BCHI Foundation:
To support the needs of each Chapter of Back Country Horsemen of Idaho


Purpose & Definition
The Foundation as related to BCHI:

1. What we are:
The Foundation is a sister corporation to the BCHI and operates under its own By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation within the framework of a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. The Foundation was incorporated in September 1999.

2. What we do:
The Foundation was established to provide an avenue for any BCHI Chapter to solicit funds that would go to the Foundation and be distributed to the local Chapter(s) within the guidelines specified by the donor of the funds. By allocation of the funds through the Foundation, the donation becomes a tax write-off for the donor and tax-free income to the Chapter(s). This is achievable due to the Foundation's non-profit status. One of the responsibilities of the Foundation Director, or Alternate, is to express its Chapter's needs in terms of projects and funds required.

3. What are our goals?
Since its origination, the Foundation has not achieved the level of approval and support of the BCHI Chapters of which it is capable. It is our goal and desire of the current officers to put the Foundation on the right track. This can only be accomplished with the help and participation of the BCHI Chapters. It is our sincere wish that each Chapter will send its Director and, if possible, the Alternate to each of the future meetings. The Foundation meets three times per year in conjunction with, but separate from, the BCHI Board of Directors' meetings.

Purpose of Back Country Horsemen of Idaho

The purpose of this organization shall be:

1. To perpetuate the common sense use and enjoyment of horses in America's backcountry and wilderness.

2. To work to insure that public lands remain open to recreational stock use.

3. To assist the various government and private agencies in their maintenance and management of said resource.

4. To educate, encourage and solicit active participation in the wise use of the backcountry resource by horsemen and the general public commensurate with our heritage.

5. To foster and encourage the formation of new units of the organization.

So, now what?

The Foundation will help donors get the tax write-off they need. In addition, the Foundation will be trying to obtain donations and grants that can be used by all Chapters in Idaho. Once we are able to acquire monies for distribution, all Chapters will be notified of how to apply for a share of these monies.

Next step is to provide assistance to the Chapters in their efforts to obtain donations and grants, themselves. When monies or gifts are run through the Foundation, the Foundation charges 5% for administration.

Items and monetary donations solicited from local businesses do not need the exempt forms unless requested. However, large Corporations and Private Monetary Grants will need the exempt form for tax write-off purposes. The Foundation realizes that most items and monetary donations solicited by local Chapters will not need the Foundation.

For an example, Rosauers donated food at their cost but wanted the exempt form for tax write-off. The retail value must be entered on the exempt form as well as the amount paid. The difference must be run through the Foundation. The Chapter would run the difference through the Foundation. The Foundation would return their portion back to the Chapter, less the 5% for administration.
