FBRGCF Buildings and Grounds Policy
(approved July 5, 2012)

The cabins and gardens owned by the French Broad River Garden Club Foundation, Inc. may be used for private events only if they reflect the purpose/mission of the club (See By-Laws, Article II, Sections1-3). Each member of the Garden Club is entitled to reserve and use the facilities as long as those criteria are met.

Because of our status as a non-profit organization 501(c)3, strictly social events are prohibited.

Other non-profit organizations may use the facilities if:
● They are sponsored by a FBRGCF member;
● The purpose of the meeting is educational; and
● The sponsor is in attendance for the event.

A contract which includes guidelines will be sent to the club member (and if applicable, a duplicate should be sent to the sponsored agency) to fill out and sign. The Garden Club will ask for a donation that will go directly into the Scholarship Fund.
