I arrived home last night and opened up a letter from the IRS:
“Dear Applicant: We’re pleased to tell you we determined you’re exempt from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)3. Donors can deduct contributions they make to you…”
After years of waiting, we are now an OFFICIAL non-profit organization! This means that companies and individuals can now donate to The Deaf Dream for tax-exemptions and we can apply for grants. This is a huge step forward for our little organization!
I am so full of gratitude. The Deaf Dream is really taking off right now with our international team growing and meeting monthly, our non-profit status, and many different Deaf Dreamers bringing projects happening in countries from Turkey to the USA to Malaysia. Miracles are happening!
I am so excited, I might burst. This letter was the best Christmas gift ever!
Thank you for your support everyone – watch out world, The Deaf Dream is coming!
