We are beyond excited to announce that our application for 501(c)3 status has been approved and we are officially a certified tax exempt organization.
We want to extend our gratitude to the members of our board; George Welch, Michael Pirron, and Terry Sherman. And also thank Won-Suk Choi for his counsel on our legal matters, without which we may still be lost in a sea of applications. The combined effort of our board and volunteers along with the low-cost business model we presented to the IRS has earned us our official designation as Richmond’s premier 501c3 technology services provider.
What does this mean?
Nothing has changed in our services to the community, providing low-cost IT solutions to other nonprofits. Having 501(c)3 status allows IT4Causes to fundraise more efficiently. Now all past, current, and future donations can be considered as tax deductible. With nonprofit accreditation comes greater event and fundraising opportunities like involvement in The Amazing Raise and other nonprofit specific assistance.
What can you do?
Everything you are doing! Keep volunteering your time, skills, and support to IT4Causes and your community. If you are interested in becoming a part of the team as a volunteer helping Richmond area nonprofits with IT needs, assisting with marketing and branding, or other behind-the-scenes work, reach out to us at info@IT4Causes.org.
