The Faith, Hope and Charity Society (FH&C} was formed in May of 2002, by a group of volunteers interested in raising grant funds for Deland non-profit organizations.
Local organizations receiving funding have participated in the Faith, Hope & Charity Society's fundraising events, are a recognized local 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation with the Internal Revenue Service, have a local board of directors and take part in an allocation screening process prior to the awarding of funds. These organizations must offer programs that meet the following criteria:
- Programs that provide citizens with emergency assistance.
- Programs that improve local health including disability needs.
- Programs that guide youth toward success.
- Programs that strengthen individuals and families.
- Programs that enhance the cultural & historical foundation of our community.

This legal compliance checklist was created by the Florida Nonprofit Alliance. It outlines laws applicable to Florida nonprofits regarding their governance, advocacy, human resources, and fundraising. This checklist is not intended to give legal advice and before relying on any of the contents herein the nonprofit should consult with an attorney. The checklist is intended as a compliance tool for Florida nonprofits classified as public charities under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). In order to be classified as a public charity under IRC Section 501(c)(3), a nonprofit generally must be a church, hospital, qualified medical research organization affiliated with hospitals, schools, colleges and universities or must meet one of the public support tests provided for under the IRC. Florida nonprofits that are not classified as public charities under IRC Section 501(c)(3) may be subject to different rules and regulations and should not rely on this checklist as a compliance tool.
