Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is comprised of two nonprofit corporations – SHP Foundation and SHP Action Fund. This website refers to the two organizations collectively under the one name, Sandy Hook Promise.
Two organizations allow us to fulfill our overall mission of gun violence prevention through non-policy and policy means while meeting IRS regulations.
SHP Foundation and Action Fund have overlapping, though not identical, Boards of Directors and Officers. SHP Foundation and the Action Fund will observe appropriate corporate formalities (for example, separate accounts, reporting, by-laws and charter) and any allocation of shared assets or staff will be performed in accordance with a formally set Cost-Sharing Agreement, which ensures that the Foundation does not subsidize any of the activities of the Action Fund or vice versa.
