NCALC operates in conjunction with the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI) and receives the majority of its income from membership dues, registration fees for events held throughout the year, affiliate membership dues, and advertising. Any gifts to the General Fund would be much appreciated as it would help us expand the services and programs to our membership.
Contributions designated for educational activities are utilized to sponsor quality education and training programs for launderers and cleaners.
Legislative & Regulatory Fund
Our signature regulatory achievement has been the creation of the Dry Cleaning Solvent Cleanup Act (DSCA). Created in 1997, its purpose is to identify and remediate any environmental damage caused by our industry. To date, we have certified over 500 sites and have closed out over 130 with No Further Action (NFA) determinations. The beauty of DSCA, is that it brings our industry together with Government to solve environmental issues that most members wouldn’t be able to solve on their own.
Leaders, volunteers, staff and lobbyists of NCALC meet regularly with the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) to monitor progress, address issues, and assure the continued success of this program. Gifts to our Legislative & Regulatory Fund, while not tax deductible, are key to protecting our industry from expensive assessments and cleanup costs.
Growing and maintaining strong membership and participation in our association, adds value to all participants through greater networking and information sharing. Donations directed to Membership Development help to underwrite the costs of attracting and retaining launderers and cleaners in NCALC membership and activities.
Sto Fox Scholarship Fund
The Sto Fox Scholarship Fund is so named to recognize one of the most important and committed Executive Directors in the history of our Association. The principal purpose of this fund is to defray the cost associated with training at the DLI facility in Maryland. Disbursements from this fund are reserved for our members and their employees only for the purpose of maintaining the level of professional garment care by our industry.
Any gifts to the association are greatly appreciated and will help NCALC continue to fulfill our mission.
Note: Contributions to NCALC may NOT be claimed as charitable deductions on your income tax. Membership fees and gifts made by businesses can be deductible as business expenses if necessary to the donor’s business. It is best to consult with your CPA if you have questions about the deductibility of a gift.
