The Helen David Relief Fund defines a “Bartender” as an individual employed in serving beverages or otherwise engaged in the production, promotion or distribution of alcoholic beverages. An individual is considered “employed” as a Bartender if, for not less than one year prior to the application, the individual performed services as a Bartender on a regular full- or part-time basis or, if the catastrophic event or emergency hardship giving rise to the application prevents the individual from performing such services, for not less than one year prior to the event or hardship the individual performed services as a Bartender on a regular full- or part-time basis.
2. Experience an event or emergency related to breast cancer, or another form of cancer that is:
Identifiable and described in detail in the application
3. Lack the necessities of life, including financial, physical, mental, or emotional well being as a result of the cancer diagnoses.
4. Provide tangible documentation of the cancer related hardship.
HDRF SELECTION CRITERIA
Grant recipients will be selected solely on the basis of the eligibility requirements above. Each grant applicant will be pre-screened for compliance with the eligibility and application requirements on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis by USBG National Charity Foundation staff or other persons designated by USBG Foundation’s President. All pre-screened and approved applications will be submitted to USBG National Charity Foundation's grants Committee for review. Grants will be awarded by said Grants Committee on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis upon reviewing the application and ascertaining any additional facts and circumstances as necessary.
Grant applications will not be denied solely due to the fact that the Bartender terminated employment after the application was made, regardless of the reason for such termination. Moreover, at the time the grant is awarded, there will be no requirement or condition, express or implied, that the recipient render future employment services as a Bartender.
Grants will be made in the form of lump sum distributions to the recipient, or as determined by the USBG National Charity Foundation's Grants Committee based on the needs of the particular recipient. Each grant recipient will be required to provide USBG National Charity Foundation with documentation that the grant was used in a manner consistent with the terms of the grant. Although the extent and form of documentation required in connection with a particular distribution will depend on the nature and urgency of the underlying cancer related hardship, preferred documentation will include evidence produced by third parties and used for other purposes, such as medical prescriptions, receipts, overdue invoices, other third party affirmations and other similar tangible documentation.
