It brings me great pleasure to announce today that, due to our amazing supporters, we have raised the funds required ($850) to apply for tax-exempt status! We have been in contact with several large corporations in Las Vegas and Henderson that have been waiting for us to receive our 501c3 tax-exempt status to award us grants to help with our mission. WOOHOO - we finally made it!
Over the next week, we will update our financial reports for the exemption application to include our most recent data. Once the application is finalized, we will mail the nearly 100-page document to the IRS for approval. According to an IRS representative that I spoke with, our application can be approved in as little as 6 weeks after receipt! However, it may take up to a full year if they need to assign a specialist to our application.
I want to sincerely thank every one of our supporters for making this possible. Every single dollar that was donated to us has been crucial to making this happen. We spent 2 years methodically selecting our board members, volunteers and community partners in preparation for this very moment. Even though this is a HUGE accomplishment for our organization, this only marks the beginning for us.
