The letter came in the mail today and we are pleased to announce that after months of work, we have been granted official 501(c)3 nonprofit status from the IRS! That means that all donations are now tax-deductible on both federal and state tax returns!
The spring grant round is closed and we are happy to announce that we are funding 2 grants, and working with 2 other applicants to see if we can make their ideas work with our guidelines! We’ll be awarding the cost of a commuter bike for a woman who uses her bike for most of her transportation needs and has an unreliable one now, and we’ll be funding a game set for a community member who welcomes many people who are new to the neighborhood into his home and connects them to others. Congrats to everyone and thanks for such great applications!
