A: It is against the Rule to simply pass money to another organization without any involvement Please refer to 3.12 of the Rule, “The use of funds and assets”.
The Society may not, at any level, allot funds to other organizations, except for branches of the Vincentian family; for example, the Sisters of Charity. Funds may be allotted to organizations that are pursuing objectives similar to those of the Society and that are registered charities according to the Income Tax Act. However, funds may be allotted only if the Society participates in the activities of these organizations and plays an active role in their management.
This last sentence is key, in the sense that SSVP must play an active role in the management and be a partner.
