Finally, after much work and several weeks of waiting, we have received official notice from the Internal Revenue Service that our Club is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization; the effective date is October 13, 2013. The IRS letter will be available on our website soon. This change in status brings many new opportunities for our Club to grow. I want to express my appreciation to all of those who gave time and energy to the long process of qualifying for this status.
