No later than [number] days following the end of each calendar quarter the Donor will account to the Donee in writing for the financial results of the Property's operation during such calendar quarter setting out the gross rentals, all expenses (exclusive of depreciation), and net profits for the calendar quarter. Together with the accounting the Donor will distribute 25 percent (25%) of the net profit to the Donee. The Donee may use such distribution for its general purposes so long as such use does not adversely affect the Donor's right to deduct the fair market value of the conveyance to the Donee.

If any quarterly accounting shows a deficit, the provisions of Paragraph 3 shall apply.

The Donee may use its share of the gross proceeds of the sale of the Property or its income from the purchase-money mortgage for its general purposes so long as such use does not adversely affect the Donor's right to deduct the fair market value of the conveyance to the Donee or the payments of the Donee's share of the expenses of ownership of the Property as charitable contributions.
