The Chapter Standard Donation Form:

         Is used for dollar values from $50 to $250.

         Provides some assurance that the individual involved is truly in need of temporary assistance.

         Documents efforts to obtain assistance elsewhere.

The Chapter Repetitive Donation Form:

         Is used for dollar values from $300 to $600.

         Chapter Sponsored Events Form is used for dollar values from $300 to $600.

         Identifies both repetitive and holiday donations.
