OUR POLICY WITH REGARD TO TICKET RESELLERS AND EVENT PROMOTERS:


As it has been an ongoing problem at the estate we would like to address the issues related to our not for profit status and the problems that ticket resellers and event promoters pose for us. The Federal government has many rules surrounding the establishment and operation of 501 c 3 non profit organizations. Most prominent among these rules is the fact that nobody may use a 501 organization to make a personal profit from said company. This includes the director, the trustees of the Board and any others involved in the operation or promotion of fund raising activities and administration of the organization. All of our staff are non-compensated volunteers. When a reseller or event promoter sells “tickets” to a Prospect Place fund raiser that person is then using the corporation to make a profit (adding to the established baseline cost of a ghost hunt for instance) and representing themselves as agents of the corporation (even though they are not sanctioned to do so). This is a violation not only of our Bylaws but also of federal law and is punishable by the government (especially when they use the Adams Center to write the amount paid to us off their income tax – a legitimate write off for an individual who ghost hunts with us but a violation of the law for a profit making entity).


There has also been criticism of George Adams for living at the estate (in the building). George and his partner, Felix Spector, initially owned the building privately. When Dr. Spectors health failed and he was diagnosed with a terminal illness George and Felix worked together to create the 501 organization. They donated the building to the corporation and in exchange were granted what is known as a “life estate” in the building. This means that, in exchange for all the time, effort and money they had invested (and were giving away) that they should be allowed to live in the building for the remainder of their natural lives without fee. A small price to pay for the investment of two persons life savings and efforts. Even today George only enjoys this small privilege. No money comes into his hands from the fund raising efforts. What little money he does make is from miscellaneous work he performs outside the corporation such as computer repair, car repairs, and whatever else he can do to make a little cash (such as eBay, etc.). George has only one 26 year old car (a Pontiac Fiero – paid for). People may have seen the Dodge truck, a lawn mower, a lot of nice tools, etc., etc. These DO NOT belong to George (although he has use of them in relation to the needs of the estate only). If anything were to ever happen to the Adams Center these items belong to the Adams Center and would not remain in the possession of any individual. If George were to ever leave Prospect Place he would leave with a very few personal possessions (some clothing, an old laptop computer, a few automotive tools and the Fiero).


So it should be clear that even the most involved member of the Adams Center (George) is not able to make a profit from the company. Now ask yourself why anyone else should be allowed to (even if it were not morally and legally wrong)? This is why ticket reselling is not permitted in any form.


We thank you for taking the time to read this and your continued support in our efforts to preserve and restore the estate as well as teach the incredible history it contains.
