Ever hear of RSVP? Here is a link to their website:
They told me in a phone conversation that they are “an employment agency for volunteers”. Their financial information is produced by the Willoughby-Eastlake School District Treasurer’s office. They received the following payments from the Lake County Senior levy for the years 2013 – 2017.
FY 2013 $125,422
FY 2014 $137,161
FY 2015 $121,342
FY 2016 $121,000
FY 2017 $115,000
Total $619,925 4.72% of Senior levy funds distributed
I sent an email telling them who we were, and why we need the financial information. We want to ensure that these agencies are good stewards of the taxpayers’ money. I asked for 5 years worth of financial information. Here is a sample of what I was sent. To say it is the bare minimum is an understatement.

I do not get the impression that the taxpayers’ funds are being spent wisely. I will be speaking to the Lake County Administrator, who expressed knowledge about the distribution of Senior Levy funds when I asked questions about the allocation of funds at a Commissioners’ meeting. Stay tuned for more details on this non-profit.
