LPADA is now the Lake Poinsett Association

As our Association completes the major fund raising Handicapped Accessible Dock Project we reflect on a future focused effort. We have identified a need. The museum, which sees thousands of visitors and school children each year, has become too small. Harlan Olson along with Game Fish and Parks have been working toward a plan to make the space large enough to house the collection and make the space and collection able to be thoroughly perused without a docent. Your board believes this is our next major project.

The dock took about 5 years to come to fruition. It cost a little over twelve thousand dollars. Our next need is a major overhaul of the museum facilities. This is a much larger project and will require greater fund raising. To up-scale our fund raising abilities we need to change our organizational structure. Last month we started this process with the revision to our by-laws to make our purpose clearer. These changes will allow the IRS to see more clearly that we are not only a South Dakota Non-Profit Corporation, but a Federal Tax Exempt Corporation. This change has a couple of structural benefits.

The most desirable benefit to being ‘tax exempt’ allows us to apply for corporate and grant sponsorship of our projects. Making donations eligible to be deducted from Federal Income Tax is a major incentive to support our projects. The change will also allow your contributions to our Association eligible to be deducted from your Federal Income Tax. This will improve our abilities to take on larger and more meaningful projects like the museum.

In this effort our name has changed. We will no longer be the Lake Poinsett Area Development Association. We are now the Lake Poinsett Association. Over the next few months we will make this change to our correspondence, newsletter and website. Stay tuned…
