I received a letter from the IRS that begins
"We are pleased to inform you..."
Yep. Nettie & Friends, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3)!
We are a tax deductible public charity supporting education! WooHoo!
I can't tell you how happy that makes me.
Special thanks to Mary Ellen Hennen, consultant extraordinaire!
She did a lot of hand holding, talking me down when I was ready to
tear my hair out, and encouraging when I said "I need to get this done
before school starts!" She also celebrated with me when I put all
the various and sundry pieces of paper in a large envelope and mailed
it off to the IRS (and when I called her after I opened the simple envelope
the IRS sent to me!)
It was not an easy process, but I believe a worthwhile one!
Thanks to everyone who listened to me whine about
"how I'm spending my summer vacation..."
Thanks to friends who stepped up to be on the "Founding Board of Directors."
See that new logo? It's part of our 'getting things organized' move.
Many thanks to graphic designer, Christine Meade!
Happy fall everyone.
More later, Nettie
