2 year request by Councilman Weiner realized: Nonprofit organization established by county to donate to events or facilities - Delaforum.com

CONDUIT: A nonprofit organization has been set up to enable individuals or businesses to donate to county government events or facilities without compromising ethics regulations or going through a somewhat complicated process to have the gifts accepted. Richard Przywara, its president, said New Castle County Pride enabled I.N.G. Direct, a bank, to finance renovation of a playground and unspecified businesses to sponsor a recent 'sleep under the stars' campout. Przywara, a former chief administrative officer for the county, is serving as a volunteer as are Catherine Dukes, vice president, and Alex Meitsler, treasurer.

Przywara said 'friends' groups can now funnel tax-deductible donations to the county without having to go though the process to obtain Internal Revenue Service certification as nonprofit. County government can obtain event sponsorships from firms which do business with the county without the risk of conflicts of interest. Pride will only manage the money and assure accountability, he said. It will not do any soliciting. It also can hire, for instance, event entertainers without going through the process of contracting for professional services, he told a County Council committee meeting on Oct. 28, 2008.
