Since attending a seminar on how to become a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization at the AAW symposium in Minneapolis last June, SPSW President Dan Stromstad has made attaining that status for the SPSW his goal. Following many months of research and hard work, including the approval of revised by-laws by the membership at the December meeting, the paperwork has been filed with the IRS. According to the IRS rules, we are now a 501(c)(3) organization until they say we aren’t.
Dan thanked those involved with getting to this point in this email to the SPSW Board:
“It is true that we all worked hard to get this accomplished. Andy (Firpo) for his timely work on the Bylaws, Les (Johnson) for all his work on the books, Bill (wood) for supporting our efforts with his emails and newsletter. My many calls to Larry Miller, Jack Wayne and Pat McCart seeking information to fill out the complicated form. Les’s wife Carole also got involved with wise counsel since her club just went through this same process. There must be others to thank as well, but suffice it to say that it was a job well done and it is done for now.
Thanks to everyone for their efforts and support.
