As of February 19, 2015, FOOT has a signed agreement with the Madison Parks Foundation that provides us with IRS 501 (c) (3) status for fund-raising purposes. Through this agreement, FOOT will also be able to use of the Foundation's PayPal account when fund-raising, and will be able to post up-coming FOOT events on the Foundation calendar. Funds FOOT has raised through its concerts, ski evenings and other events, in the amount of $500, have been deposited with the Foundation for use by FOOT for the following broad purposes stated in the agreement:

-- General improvements and enhancements to both Olin & Turville Parks, such as bike racks, signage, seed-tosses, and other conservation efforts and
   improved amenities.
-- Save-a-Tree program for selected ash trees in Olin Park, if applicable.
-- FOOT-sponsored and Parks Division-approved programs and activities in Olin and Turville Parks that foster the ends of the community policing effort
