Required Documentation for GE Program

Member organizations who wish to apply for the GEP or renew their GEP status must have the following documents:

  • A comprehensive list of all governing body members, including contact information.  
  • A copy of board minutes from the latest General Annual Meeting. 

    The secretary's minutes from the last Annual General Meeting of the members. 

  • A copy of board minutes from the latest meeting, if different from the latest General Annual Meeting.
  • A summary of annual activities. 

    A basic summary of the activities and events produced in the past year.

  • A copy of the organization's most recent financial statement. 

    A basic balance sheet showing a list of incomes and expenses. As well as the balance of assets and debts. The latest treasure’s report will also suffice.

  • A copy of the organization's most recent IRS form 990. 

    Use the IRS Select Check service to get a copy of your filing if you don't have a copy of your 990.

  • State certificate or documentation that the organization is in good standing. 

    Most secretary of state offices have searchable databases for business entities. Absent a document, a screenshot of a webpage indicating good standing is acceptable. 

  • A copy of the organization's organizing documents and by-laws (if updated since last year). 
  • HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - proof of general liability insurance and D&O (directors and officers) insurance is highly recommended to protect your organization, and to protect each individual serving on the board from personal liability on behalf of an un-insured organization. This is state, national, and international best practice. This is not required to participate in the FAI GE program.
