Q May the county make a donation to Prairie Opportunity, a private nonprofit community action agency organization that provides services to low-income families, the elderly and the disabled?

A No. There is no authority for a board of supervisors to make a donation to a nonprofit corporation without specific statutory authority, and while Section 19-5-93 grants discretionary authority to donate to certain institutions, this is not one of those listed.
