Foundation Activity Tracker


1.  Introduction

Foundation Activity Checklist

It has been fairly obvious that for a number of years one of the biggest problem the Foundation struggles with is remembering to take care of things that need to be taken care of on some kind of periodic interval. We forget to file and let our foundation become inactive. We forget to renew trademarks until the last minute, and so on.

To help improve this we have created a simple and effective periodic activity tracking checklist.
