RESA Welfare Request Guidelines

Please read through our guidelines carefully, as we have made some important changes. 

  1. Requests CAN NOT be granted to individuals, only to organizations registered with the 86th FSS Private Organizations office. Please verify BEFORE submitting an application that your organization is registered, can receive funds, and has a bank account. Checks will not be reissued.

  2. Please fill out the request form completely. Incomplete requests will be delayed and possibly returned.

  3. Requests for reimbursement of items/services already received, or for events that have already taken place, will not be granted.

  4. At LEAST 35 days must be given between the request and the date needed; This is to ensure that there is time enough to have your request considered by the appropriate groups- please see our Constitution and Bylaws for further details. The RESA Board meets once a month to consider Welfare Requests, typically in the evening on the first Thursday of the month. Failure to give enough time for consideration may result in delay or denial of your request.

  5. Submit your request only once. Multiple submissions can cause delays in the request process.

  6. If your organization does not utilize the whole or part of the donation the RESA grants for the purpose requested, then the unused amount must be returned. A check should be made out to RESA along with a letter of explanation and hand-delivered to the RESA Thrift Shop, or mailed to the address below.

  7. All checks must be picked up from the Thrift Shop within 30 days of notification. Once that time has passed, all unclaimed checks will be voided and the request must be resubmitted to RESA. If a voided check instance occurs, the request is not guaranteed to be granted again; nor does it guarantee a denial.

  8. All checks must be cashed/deposited by the receiving organization within 90 days of the date written on the check. If 90 days lapses and the funding is still required, a new request must be submitted to RESA. Resubmission does not guarantee acceptance or denial.
