A 7:    Yes. Based upon our Restricted Fund Policy, any funds that were designated to a
          specific emergency or program that exceeds the amount spent within a certain time,
          depending upon the size of the donation and size of overage, either the donors will be
          contacted and asked if they would like to redirect the funds to another program or if
          the overage is nominal, the funds will be designated as unrestricted.
 
          At this point, our expenditures exceed the contributions received for our Hurricane
          Sandy Relief efforts.
