Well... it has been a productive day today! We started off with a few calls to FedEx to establish a nonprofit account, Intuit to check on bookkeeping prices, shopped around for a registered agent and decided to go with USA-Registered Agent for the price of $50 for one year. This is a required service when you are filing the required State documents for Incorporation. The state filing fee is an additional $25 for the Initial List of Officers and Directors and a final $50 fee for filing the Articles of Incorporation pursuant to NRS 82.011. If you are interested in donating these fees to the organization, please use the contact us tab in the menu.
The search is on for qualified and committed individuals that are interested in being a part of the Board for I'm Positive, Inc. These are the elected people that are chosen by the community we serve to be in charge of the leadership, development, continuity, responsibility and management of all executive affairs governing policies, procedures, programs, services, fundraisers, committees, legal tasks and all things related to furthering the mission of the cause; to provide direct relief to anyone affected by HIV for any reason. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please use the contact us tab in the menu.
The next important task is to round up the
$400 [deprecated] $850 the IRS needs to process our tax exemption paperwork. According to Notice 844 from the IRS, we must file for this tax-exempt status within 27 months from the time we started business. There are procedures to apply for an extension on this deadline, but I firmly believe we can rally together the funds to file our State documents and our IRS exemption paperwork before that deadline.
Now, as required by law (and good morals), I must advise you that any donation that is given to our organization before the IRS has approved our paperwork can not be guaranteed to be tax-deductible. Only after the IRS has approved our paperwork can you claim your donations to our organization on your taxes as charitable contributions. Since 2009, I have made a person financial donation of $525.92 - I'm asking for everyone that believes in this cause to help me go the rest of the way and meet our goal of $475!

Thank you from the deepest part of my heart, without your support this organization would be just a dream.
