CLICK HERE FOR HOFF HISTORY & FACT SHEET
The Hall of Fame "Foundation" deeply appreciates your interest. Established in 1991 with a cash donation and proceeds from a Shaggers' Hall of Fame Induction weekend, a fund has been accumulated which is available to provide financial assistance to people of all ages and circumstances. These grants are based only on financial need regardless of race, religion, dance style or any other categorization.
The Hall of Fame "Foundation" is not connected with the Shagger's Hall of Fame, Inc. The "Foundation" is chartered in the State of South Carolina as an eleemosynary organization with IRS 501(3) (c) tax-exempt status. Historically, "Foundation" contributions have come from shaggers and shag-affiliated organizations and activities.
The "Foundation" is managed by an fourteen member Board of Directors (director pictures & contact info are below). All are volunteers. Vacancies are filled by the Board. Only persons who have an extensive and proven record of significant community service are selected.
All contributions to the Hall of Fame "Foundation" are deposited in unrestricted interest-bearing investment and checking accounts. Intricate rules and procedures are in place to insure the integrity of your donation. Typically, annual administrative and operating expense to income ratio is three to five percent. This is extremely low. The only operating expenses paid from contributions are postage and supplies, telephone, financial reports by a Certified Public Account and limited travel expenses of Board members. The "Foundation" has NO salaried positions.
The Long Range Plan for the Hall of Fame "Foundation" is to acquire a principle sufficient to remain in perpetual trust. Interest from the trust will provide for grants and assistance to applicants approved by the Board of Directors. The principle will remain intact in perpetuity.

When appropriate, a letter of acknowledgment will also be sent to an honoree.

4. Pharmaceutical Needs

We've accomplished a great deal, but so much more must be done. To continue our work, we need your help to "Care for Friends". What's been most important to the "Foundation" in the past has been "word of mouth" referrals: people like you telling others about us. Every year the challenges we face are substantially greater than those of the previous. We need you to join us and be part of this important cause. We need your support, and you need the benefits of our important work. For those who have understood our goals in the past, for those who will participate in the future...thank you, and may you reap one hundredfold the goodness that you sow.
