Question of the Week

November 29-December 6, 2022
We run a thrift store where the proceeds pay to run the store, including a manager’s salary, and the surplus supports a homeless shelter. (Every other worker volunteers their time). Our community raised the money for the nonprofit to purchase the building. We want to change the type of shelter we support because new needs have risen in our community. Can the building be transferred from the current nonprofit to the new one or must it be purchased again?  Answer
