Gifts made to the Alex Dees Memorial Foundation are used as the donor directs. Typically, gifts are restricted for a specific program (i.e., scholarship funds, activity and event sponsorships, etc.). A gift is restricted when the donor writes on a check, reply card, or other correspondence indicating how the gift is used. The designation of a gift is confirmed on the receipt letter returned to the donor. Alex Dees Memorial Foundation also receives unrestricted gifts that are utilized where the need is the greatest.
