A New Year means big transition
Message from founder & CEO Connor Archer
I would like to welcome all you into 2017. We are now able to celebrate lots of milestones, because of our work concluding 2016.
On Wednesday December 28th, 2016, I officially signed the necessary paperwork to send to the IRS, to claim tax exemption (non-profit) status under section 501(c)3. This was a huge goal of mine, and i'm happy that we can now begin 2017 in the right direction.
At this time, we are accepting pledges for donations and sponsorships which will become tax-deductible once we recieve our designation through the IRS. When you pledge, you don't have to send your donation and sponsorship immediately. The individual or organization can do that once we notify the individual or organization that our organization has received the designation letter from the IRS.
With an attorney who has been in the field for almost 25 years, a board of directors with tons of experience in non-profit governing, and with a CEO who is devoted to making sure that we are furthering the charitable purposes of The Courageous Steps Project, I am confident that we will receive our status in no time.
You can also just send your sponsorship or donation to: The Courageous Steps Project, P.O. Box 1, Stillwater, ME 04489. Once we do receive our designation letter, we will make sure to notify all of our donors and sponsors that we are officially tax-exempt. All tax-exempt donations and sponsorships will be retroactive back to July 25th, 2016 when The Courageous Steps Project became an independent corporation.
I am excited to kick off 2017 with a new comprehensive plan that builds on the accomplishments from 2016. I encourage you to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions. To email one of our initiatives, please visit our website at: www.thecourageousstepsproject.org, and find that information under our CONTACT page.
