All transactions with third party vendors, foundations, or agencies are the legal responsibility of Community Partners. Under no condition may Project Leaders, project advisory board members, project employees, or volunteers execute contracts, grants, agreements, or permits without an authorized Community Partners signatory.
You must discuss all prospective contracts, Memoranda of Understanding (MOU), grants, leases (including co-working spaces), agreements, permit requests, and other third-party transactions with Community Partners before you may complete the transaction. Community Partners must review your finances with you to ensure that your project has sufficient funds set aside in your project account to cover all related costs of contracts, agreements, and permits. If documents associated with these transactions require a signature, an authorized officer of Community Partners must sign them.
The programs team can answer specific questions you may have about hiring independent contractors, leasing premises, opening credit accounts, installing telephone lines, receiving foundation grants, or entering into other financial obligations.
Once Community Partners enters into agreements or contracts on behalf of your project, we then email a copy of the executed document to the Project Leader. If you are interested in accessing all of your project's executed documents, we manage a Box folder for each project with all of your documents. Each project received a link to their personalized Box folder in the initial welcome email from Community Partners. If you can't find the link to your Box folder, please contact info@CommunityPartners.org and we will send you a link to your personalized Box Folder.
Questions related to agreements and contracts can be sent to contracts@CommunityPartners.org.
