If your project is accepted as a CORE Cause, the project's revenue and expense activity must be conducted exclusively through the CORE Foundation bank account opened specifically for your group.

A CORE Foundation leader will be a signer on your account.

A minimum $1,000 opening deposit is required from the Cause to activate the bank account. Opening deposit can be sourced from fundraising with CORE's assistance. Prior to activation of the Cause's bank account, project revenue will be maintained in the CORE Operating Account and available for your project's use only.

Okay, let's move on.
No thanks, I'm out!
