Somewhat startling was the revelation that 20 organizations which applied for City Fund funding and were awardees did not have their Charitable Solicitation License or Charitable Exempt License. This raises all sorts of questions, such as are these organizations applying for other grants without the licenses in place? How do they receive funding if they do not have them? If I were prepping the council for oversight hearings coming up in February, I would put this issue at the top of the list.
