Today Habele mailed its IRS form 1023 Tax Exemption Application Packet. Once we receive our formal recognition, the 501(c)3 exemption status will be backdated to our incorporation date (May 11, 2006), and will cover all donations from that point.
We also mailed the first box of donated t-shirts to the elementary schools on the Ulithian islands of Falalop, Federai, and Asor. Photos will follow once the shirts arrive! We continue to make steady progress towards our summer fundraising goals. Please keep getting the word out!
