Membership Update – September 22, 2016

Since the last update, many things have happened and I finally have enough time to send out this update. First, N4WDA has become a 501(c)7 corporation. This makes us a not-for-profit corporation in the eyes of the US government. Our first act, when we started in February, 2013, was to obtain a charter from the State of Nevada recognizing us as a not-for-profit corporation in Nevada. This federal recognition will give us more stature when dealing with corporations and government agencies. This 501(c)7 status does not mean that donors can deduct their contributions to us from their personal income taxes… that would be a 501(c)3 charitable foundation. As we grow, the Board of Directors will consider creation of a conservation and education foundation whereby N4WDA and its member clubs can…
