District VIII Founders Education Foundation Fund:

A “Gift Agreement” document drafted and approved by a unanimous vote of the District VIII Council became a legal document in 2006. This established the “Founders Education Foundation Fund” and provided binding rules for the receipt and disbursement of funds for the educational purposes laid out in the document. After a fund-raising goal is met, it is hoped that a specified portion of the annual interest may be applied primarily to the cost of bringing neonatal fellows and other individuals in training to the annual conference. It is also a prudent protection against unforeseen expenses in excess of revenues at future conferences.
