I am very proud to announce that June 9th, we finally received our official 501(c)3 approval letter from the IRS! (Retroactive to July of 2006 when we incorporated :) )
The receipt of this letter and the official registration of our ministry adds further legitimacy to our mission and advocacy for the adoption of orphans with Down syndrome and other special needs from around the world.
You can read more about it at www.reecesrainbow.com/501c3.htm
Many of you have already inquired about various ways to increase awareness and donations....now that we have this letter, we can now file for MissionFish on Ebay, Guidestar, Suntrust, employer matching contribution programs, fundraisers through each of our local Walmart and Target stores, etc.
I hope you will join me in celebrating this major milestone in the growth of our ministry! Thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support, both emotional and financial. Nearly (100) children literally owe you their lives, and (100) more are still waiting.
God bless you all, and if you have any other fundraising ideas, please do write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also seeking GRANT WRITING HELP, so if you or anyone you know has expertise with grant writing, to seek out corporate grants for operational expenses, additional adoption grants, urgent needs, etc, please let me know! As of Monday, we are full bore!
