501(3)(c) Update

We officially formed a board of trustees, finished our paperwork, and registered as a non-profit organization and a 501c3. Now we wait on bated breath to hear if we are approved.

The state application was a quick and easy automatic yes. The federal application could take many weeks to process and is the more important of the two. Having federal recognition will allow us to accept tax-deductible donations and more easily apply for grants.

We were so excited after wrapping up the paperwork that we broke into a mini impromptu dance party (see photo evidence). Look for an announcement when we finally receive federal approval!
