* Addendum: George Shuster - There is a rule for private foundations, requiring expenditure of at least 5% of the foundation's endowment on charitable purposes each year. While this rule does not likely apply to RVIA in a strict sense, it is likely a good benchmark for distribution of the relatively large RVIA funds base. If RVIA were saving its funds for some larger or longer-term purpose (for example, the repurchase of land for community use), that would be fine. But if RVIA has no other plans or purposes for its funds, it would seem appropriate to spend something like the 5% per year. Note that the 5% expenditure need not be a donation to some other charitable organization - expenditure on RVIA's own charitable purposes, such as neighborhood events, should also count toward the 5%.
