I volunteered for this organization in 2011 & 2012 in Sandy Valley. After a great deal of monetary donation, material donations and labor, I came to realize that the foundation was simply a fundraising ploy for personal projects and the donations were poorly recorded. Additionally, many projects and improvements were made against the wishes of the valley residents. One particular insult is that the membership is comprised of anyone who attends the meetings. Subsequently, anytime money is asked for or a project proposed, the word is put out to those in favor so that they would gather their friends for that meeting, guaranteeing the vote be passed. Since the foundation is run by the local Justice of the Peace the actions and decisions of the board are predetermined and do not represent the community. Nor are they ever questioned for fear of reprisal.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Allow the general community to be board members by vote only, not solicited or appointed and the general public should be allowed to attend all meetings but the voting should be limited to the board and should represent the entire valley and not just those that attend for personal gain. There should be no board members with ulterior motives or the ability to intimidate others. There should be no fear of either approving or opposing proposed projects for the foundation by the residents.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
