After a year of hard work developing our organizational infrastructure, on Tuesday, February 20th, we signed all the forms needed for Save the Shrine’s 501(c)3 application! Once the IRS approves the application, Save the Shrine will be able to receive tax-exempt donations independently of a fiscal sponsor. We will also be eligible to apply for grants that require applicants to be 501(c)3 organizations.
Our application was prepared pro bono by the law firm Jenner & Block. This was made possible by Save the Shrine’s dear friend Joe Gromacki. We are so grateful to Joe, attorney Olga Loy, and Jenner & Block for their generous assistance.
