We have been working hard this past year, not only to continue to develop solid summer programs, but also to sure up our foundations as an organization in order to be able to grow and develop in the future.
To that end, this past year we have become a registered non-profit corporation in the State of Minnesota, and, as an early Christmas gift, we received confirmation from the Federal Government that our application for tax exempt status was accepted!
This means that we can now receive tax deductible donations. If you have never made a tax-deductible contribution, this works by our supplying you a letter confirming your gift on a particular date, which you can then use as a deduction when you are paying your taxes.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support our operations in 2015. This includes providing scholarship for university students or seminarians to come to our summer program, support for planning future conferences, and also keeping our very minimal infrastructural bills paid.
