Good news for the Connecticut Chapter! On December 7th, the Internal Revenue Service completed our review, and reclassified us as a public charity.
Reading from their letter,
“Based on information you submitted, our letter dated APRIL 1997 in which you were presumed to be a private foundation is hereby superseded. You are classified as a public charity under the code section listed in the heading of this letter.”
Exerpted from letter by Lois G. Lerner
Director, Exempt Organizations – IRS
This is an exciting milestone for the Chapter. This recognition by the Internal Revenue Service allows us to seek funding through charitable contributions as opposed to exclusively membership.
Thanks to everyone … especially the team at TACF, for their assistance in securing this change in status.
