Kerr-Tar Community Assistance Corporation
The Region K Community Assistance Corporation is a Non-Profit Corporation that was established and incorporated in March of 2011. (The Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments is the administrator for the Region K CAC and currently administers services for the Person County Senior Center in Roxboro, NC, through this non-profit.)
The purposes for which the Corporation is organized are:
To augment and enhance the programs and services related to aging, juvenile justice, community development, economic development, workforce development, and transportation planning and development provided by public and private agencies, including but not limited to, the Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments, Franklin County, Granville County, Person County, Vance County, Warren County and the municipalities located in each of those counties.
To do any other lawful activities which promote and support charitable and educational purposes, and which lessen the burden of government, which activities qualify under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), and Section 105-125 and Section 105-130.1 1(a)(3) of the General Statues of North Carolina.
The purposes of the Corporation shall be limited so that it will be an exempt corporation pursuant to Section 50l(c)(3) and Section 105-130.11 of the General Statues of North Carolina, or the corresponding provision of any further revenue law.
Those other purposes set forth in the Corporation’s By-Laws (which purposes shall be consistent with those set forth above).
In addition to all powers granted corporations under the laws of the State of North Carolina, the Corporation shall have full power and authority to acquire, hold, convey or lease real property, collect contributions and pay reasonable compensation for services rendered or expenses incurred by officers, directors or employees of the Corporation and spend money and conduct business in whatever manner necessary to carry out the purposes of the Corporation.
Notwithstanding the above powers, no dividend shall be paid and no part of the income or earnings of the Corporation shall be distributed to its directors or officers either during the life of this Corporation or upon its dissolution. All of the Corporation’s assets remaining after payment of all costs and expenses of such dissolution shall be distributed to organizations which qualify for exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Code. It is intended that this Corporation shall have and continue to have the status of a corporation which is exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(a) of the Code as an organization described in Section 50l(c)(3) of the Code and which is other than a private foundation by reason of being described in Section 509(a)( 1), (2) or (3) of the Code. These Articles shall be construed accordingly, and all powers and activities of the Corporation shall be limited accordingly. The Corporation shall not carry on propaganda or otherwise attempt to influence legislation to such extent as would result in the loss of its exemption from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Code. No activity of the Corporation shall consist of participation in or intervening in (including the publishing or distributing of statements) any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. No part of the net earnings of the Corporation shall inure to the benefit of, or be distributable to its directors, officers, or other private persons, except that the Corporation shall be authorized and empowered to pay reasonable compensation for services rendered and to make payments for lawful debts and expenditures for the exempt purposes of the Corporation, and to accept money from any person, corporation, or organization to assist in carrying out its exempt purposes.
