4. Endowment accounts update

Philip Burger of T. Rowe Price will present the 2015 performance report for the Conservancy’s endowment accounts.


5.Groundwater exchange program revenue

Conservancy management has met with Gilbert Associates, the firm that prepares the Conservancy’s IRS Form 990, regarding whether revenue generated from the groundwater exchange program constitutes unrelated business income tax (UBIT).

It is Gilberts’ opinion that the Conservancy’s participation in the groundwater exchange program does not meet the standard for unrelated trade or business and would not be subject to UBIT on revenue from the groundwater exchange program.

The committee, at its December meeting, requested legal counsel also provide an opinion. This item follows up on that request.
