Hurricane Relief

The SCA Board of Directors extends sincerest sympathy to all subjects residing in the Kingdom of Meridies who were affected by Hurricane Katrina. The following reflect official SCA policy regarding disaster relief and recovery.

Extension of Memberships

Due to the recent disaster along the Gulf Coast of the United States, the US Postal Service has directed that mail not be delivered within certain ranges of zip codes in the affected areas.

The SCA Board of Directors has been asked to consider actions to prevent members in the affected areas from having their memberships counting down during a time in which no publications will be delivered. Therefore they have directed that those memberships will be placed on hiatus without loss of time remaining until the mailing ban is lifted.

As members in the affected areas re-establish a valid mailing address, the hiatus will end and membership extended for the appropriate time remaining.

Members should notify the Corporate office of their new, valid mailing address in writing, fax, or online once it is available.

Please feel free to contact the Corporate Office if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter.

Financial Aid

Greetings from the Society Exchequer,

SCA Branches may donate to other 501(c)(3) Organizations

This includes the American Red Cross, UNICEF, the Salvation Army, etc.

SCA Branches may donate to other SCA Branches

However, please wait at least a month or two, so that the exchequer is ready to handle the donations. They may have RealLife™ to handle right now and sending them a check when they have no access to the bank would not be helpful. If a branch wants to donate SCA equipment or regalia, please check with the branch first to make sure that what you want to give them will be a) needed and used, and b) not also promised from another branch. No one wants to have 12 sets of thrones and no banners, coronets or pavilions.

SCA Branches may NOT donate to other organizations that benefit only SCA Members.

There are already two charities set up to specifically benefit SCA members — Medieval Disaster Relief and Chateau Teafort Foundation.

SCA funds may NOT be directed to these organizations, but both organizations will happily take personal donations. You can even get a spiffy CD from Chateau Teafort.

It is excellent that we have an organization where so many people are willing to help out our cousins in the affected areas. I would caution that any aid that requires attention from any of the affected people right now would not be as helpful as it would be in a couple of months. They have more basic needs to attend to at this time, and those needs are best handled by the professionals.
