I have someone that is trying to do an adopt and raising funds for that - How would we do a fundraiser for that?? Does it have to be an official non-profit organization?

As long as there is a bank account for the fund then it can be done. So, if this person doesn't have a fund already set up they would need to go to their bank and set up " Sue's Adoption Fund". Then you can do the fundraiser and the check to this person would be deposited into that fund. I hope that makes sense.

Ummmm:rolleyes:
Via, Baton Rouge, several towns in Mass, Norman again, Houston, MA again, Houston again, Vegas and then MO...:D

Seriously, I grew up in Norman then we moved around (a lot) I went to school at OU hence anything else with OU alums as parents would call for disownment, met my husband in Boston we married in Houston (because now our jobs were moving us around) decided to follow Mom to Vegas and MO. So, here we are and I am so happy to be in the midwest again! I see you are in TX, you are not a Longhorn are you?

Not a longhorn but many of my husband's family are in the OKC area. Lewisville is north of Dallas

Well my director sent me to field services and they are saying that a trust fund has to be set up - That kind of makes it a lot more complicated

Heading to OKC this weekend

Setting up a trust fund is very easy, it can be done at any bank. My son had a very bad accident and we set one up for his medical bills since people were asking where they could donate money. Setting one up is almost identical to setting up a regular bank account. If people are already wanting to help with the adoption then she should probably set one up any way. I hope this helps.

This isn't quite the same but I had a girl scout who wanted to raise money for a trip the group was making to Europe. They had the PC check made out to the troup and the money was put into the girl's "account".

I also did one with an adoption support group. The parent group had an account and they earmarked the money to go the the local chapter.
