What started as an idea over a year and a half ago, has finally manifested as reality. Yesterday a letter came in the mail from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that reads:
“We are pleased to inform you that upon review of your application for tax exempt status we have determined that you are exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to you are deductible under section 170 of the Code.”
So what does this mean? It means that for those of you who were bold enough to gift J2S with a donation this year, you are free to claim it OFFICIALLY on your taxes. For those of you who were waiting in the wings to donate until we were an IRS proclaimed charity, please donate now in confidence. Gifts in kind and monetary donations are tax-deductible to you, depending on your tax situation.
We had a very strong feeling all along that this was going to be the outcome, but until this letter came in the mail, there was nothing official. THANK YOU all for your support, please stay tuned for an exciting announcement regarding a fundraising campaign and next location… as this is you and your gifts that have made this ALL possible.
From myself, the board of directors, the entire Journey to Solidarity team, and the countless 1000′s of people you have reached in Africa… Medasi paaaa (Thank you in Twi).
