Application of Cy Pres Denied for Nonprofit Corporation

Although a nonprofit corporation formed as a volunteer fire company had been decertified and could no longer fight fires in accordance with its original charitable purposes, the Attorney General could not enforce the application of cy pres in the absence of a showing as to what assets of the corporation were “donated, granted, or devised” from an outside source “in trust.” In re: Independent Fire Co. No. 1, No. 1489 C.D. 2018 (Cmwlth Ct. 2/5/2020), aff’g on other grounds, 9 Fid.Rep.3d 20 (Lycoming Co. O.C. 2018).
