Maine All Terrain Search and Rescue is asking for your help towards filing for our 501(C)(3) exemption. We have a set goal of $950, this will cover the filing fees and create a contingency fund for unforeseen needs throughout the process. By completing our 501(C)(3), we will have access to programs and grants that will allow for us to expand our program, reduce the out of pocket cost to volunteers for mandatory training, and create a more sustainable organization.
The exemption filing fees consist of:
Application for Reservation of Name ($5 filling fee) Submit Articles of Incorporation to Maine Secretary of State (Form MNPCA-6). ($40 filing fee) Application for Recognition of Exemption to the IRS (Form 1023) ($600 Filing fee) Maine Sales Tax Exemption (filling $25)
Any further donations will be used as a contingency fund to cover further administrative cost or filing fees unforeseen.
