The board shall by rule prescribe standards that must be met annually by any licensed organization that is a 501(c)(3) or festival organization. The standards must provide:
(1) operating standards for the organization, including a maximum percentage or percentages of the organization's total expenditures that may be expended for the organization's administration and operation; and
(2) standards for any expenditure by the organization of net profits from lawful gambling, including a requirement that the expenditure be related to the primary purpose of the organization.
An organization that makes a greater percentage of its lawful purpose expenditures under section 349.12, subdivision 25, paragraph (a), clause (7), on facilities or activities for one gender rather than another may not deny a reasonable request for funding of a facility or activity for the underrepresented gender if the request is for funding for a facility or activity that is a lawful purpose under that clause. An applicant for funding for a facility or activity for an underrepresented gender who believes that an application for funding was denied in violation of this subdivision may file a complaint with the board. The board shall prescribe a form for the complaint and shall furnish a copy of the form to any requester. The board shall investigate each complaint filed and, if the board finds that the organization against which the complaint was filed has violated this subdivision, shall issue an order directing the organization to take such corrective action as the board deems necessary to bring the organization into compliance with this subdivision.
