SCA BRANCHES MAY DONATE TO OTHER 501(c)(3) ORGANIZATIONS. This includes the
American Red Cross, Unicef, the Salvation Army, etc.
SCA BRANCHES MAY DONATE TO OTHER SCA BRANCHES. However, please wait at least
a month or two, so that the exchequer is ready to handle the donations. They
may have RealLife(tm) to handle right now and sending them a check when they
have no access to the bank would not be helpful. If a branch wants to donate
SCA equipment or regalia, please check with the branch first to make sure
that what you want to give them will be a) needed and used, and b) not also
promised from another branch. No one wants to have 12 sets of thrones and no
banners, coronets or pavilions.
SCA BRANCHES MAY *NOT* DONATE TO ORGANIZATIONS THAT ONLY BENEFIT SCA
MEMBERS. There are already two charities set up to specifically benefit SCA
members - Medieval Disaster Relief
(http://maxandlethrenn.org/hurricane_relief/) and Chateau Teafort Foundation
(http://www.fanucci.org/aid.html). SCA funds may NOT be directed to these
organizations, but both organizations will happily take personal donations.
You can even get a spiffy CD from Chateau Teafort.
It is *excellent* that we have an organization where so many people are
willing to help out our cousins in the affected areas. I would caution that
any aid that requires attention from any of the affected people right now
would not be as helpful as it would be in a couple of months. They have more
basic needs to attend to at this time, and those needs are best handled by
