Becoming recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization is a big blessing and honor for any nonprofit. Not only does it open more doors to receive charitable donations of both in-kind and monetary, but it affords our patrons the additional benefit that those donations may be tax deductible. On April 25, 2018, our 501(c)(3) application was approved, effective as of February 8, 2017, the date of our incorporation.
We are now classified as a public charity and may receive tax-deductible donations. This was a long time coming and much work was put in by many to see this through. Incredibly special thanks to attorneys and DASH friends Stephen Webster and Paul Buchanan for seeing this through to the end. PRAISE GOD!
