DADA Charitable Donations Guidelines
DADA adheres to a strict set of guidelines regarding charitable donations.
While each DADA member may participate with various charities of its
choosing on an individual basis, DADA itself follows a set of criteria that
protects the organization from ethical dilemmas that confront our industry.
Charity & Donations Committee serves to screen donation requests from
various organizations that request art, time, space, funds, and
contributions in other forms from DADA. In carrying out this function,
our committee focuses on developing relationships with select charities that
will enhance DADA’s goals to: "raise awareness and stimulate growth in the
visual arts throughout the front-range." This can best be achieved through
aligning DADA with other arts-orientated organizations. In each of our
relationships, there must be a mutual benefit for DADA, as well as concern
for protecting the art market in general, as well as for serving the best
interests of artists who may be asked to donate works.
principles regarding charitable donations are as follows:
1. In order for DADA to consider supporting a charity, that charity must
have an arts-related mission.
2. All works
of art that a charity offers for sale at auction must carry a minimum bid
established by DADA’s Charity and Donations Committee. Generally, this is
50% of the retail value. Artists may receive partial proceeds from sales if
specified before the donation is secured.
Participating galleries will be given full credit and the greatest
visibility during event and through advertising of events. DADA will be
acknowledged, as are other corporate donors in printed materials and other
event advertising. DADA must be provided the opportunity to review and
approve any printed materials that use its name or its logo before
member(s) will be allowed to participate in setup of artwork for event, and
organization must agree that DADA members’ works will be properly displayed.
5. All DADA
members participating in a charitable event will be given a minimum of two
tickets to the event for their contributions, no matter what the individual
ticket cost. Members may opt to forego comp tickets in an effort to generate
more funds for the charity.
Charitable organizations will provide DADA with a full report of sales,
including name, address and item purchased from each patron who purchased
artwork from the event (within 30 days).
7. Year end
reports and executive summaries must properly reflect the donation amounts
of individual DADA members under a general DADA heading.
