During such unprecedented times, coupled with an Election Year, we at the Drop Collaborative continue to promote our missions with engagement and passion - teach farming / workforce development, donate harvest, and mentor youth in this process. These missions, while partnering with small business and other organizations, are the keys to our programs success in the communities we serve.
“Helping others to help themselves is the most compassionate gift we can provide to our neighbor.”
In order to put these principles into action, we encourage diversity and the exchange of ideas with an open mind and heart, coupled with compassion, as we may learn more about the challenges others face. A community will always be a work-in-progress, and we need to listen and adapt in order to protect and help our communities thrive.
During an election year, there are many asking for donations and endorsements. It is vitally important to respect the current boundaries inherent in our laws and policies, until we the people decide to create new legislation to change them.
With that in mind, DC fully supports and abides by the following current IRS ruling:
According to the IRS, “all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity.”
Watch and learn alongwith our on-site participants, as they learn for the first time too.
