Accept a donation from the Chino Hills Community Foundation in the amount of $10,000 for furnishings for the Chino Hills Community Center. 2. Approve an estimated revenues increase in the Recreation Fund in the amount of $10,000. 3. Approve an appropriations increase in the amount of $10,000 in capital outlay in the Recreation Fund. BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS: The Chino Hills Community Foundation was established in June 2008 to promote and support the cultural, educational, and recreational needs of the City of Chino Hills. In 2013, the Foundation donated $300,000 to the City for furnishings for the Community Center. One of their fundraising programs included the Buy-A-Brick Program, which allows residents to purchase personalized bricks to be placed in the entry way of the Community Center. After installation of the bricks, there was continued interest in the program. Therefore, the Board approved to continue the program with the designation that any funds raised from the program would be used for enhancements to the Community Center. The second phase of the Buy-A-Brick program ended in June 2015, which raised over $10,000. At the March 14th meeting, the Board approved a donation of $10,000 to the City for additional enhancements to the Community Center. These funds would be used to purchase additional lobby furniture, a digital event calendar, and two portable bars. 56/139 AGENDA DATE: APRIL 26, 2016 PAGE 2 SUBJECT: DONATION FROM THE CHINO HILLS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION REVIEW BY OTHERS: This item has been reviewed by the Finance Director.
