statement is included, followed by your signature (if you email your
recommendations, your typed name will be considered your legal signature):

checks are prepared generally on Wednesday each week, and
recommendations must be received by 11 am on Tuesday to be processed
that week. We ask that grant distribution recommendations be no less
than $250.00 per recipient Christian ministry. If a recommendation is
for a grant distribution to a first time recipient, the recipient
Christian ministry must first be approved by the PCA Foundation, which
normally takes up to a week. We can generally process an "urgent"
request at other times. If you would like the grant distribution to be
sent via overnight delivery, your fund will be charged shipping fees.
Please do not hesitate
to contact us at any time with any questions that you may have.
Distributions from the PCA Foundation’s donor advised funds (DAFs),
which include its Advise & Consult Funds and Recommended Endowments,
are only permitted to benefit the organizations receiving the
distributions, not the donors to the PCA Foundation’s DAF, donor
advisors, or members of any donor’s or donor advisor’s family. This
means that PCA Foundation’s DAF funds cannot be used (a) to satisfy any
existing and legally binding pledge of a contribution made by a donor, a
donor advisor, or a family member of either; (b) to support a
fund-raising campaign or event in which a donor, a donor advisor, or a
related person will be expected to receive admission tickets or any
other gift of a more than negligible value; (c) to pay tuition, fees or
other expenses associated with an educational, vacation, recreational or
similar pursuit of a donor, a donor advisor, or a related person; or (d)
to compensate, pay, or reimburse the expenses or benefit in a similar
manner a donor, a donor advisor, or a related person in any circumstance
in which the individual is not providing meaningful and extensive
services to assist the charitable organization in carrying out its
