Hi folks! I'm hard at work building this nonprofit from the ground up and it is not cheap. I could really use your financial support to keep the momentum going for the foundation. I'm working with a volunteer lawyers group to get the forms filed correctly for tax exempt status. I'll still need close to $700 in fees to file those forms. And that's before we get to the nitty-gritty of the of the foundation's first year budget. Please consider giving to support this outreach to people with developmental disabilities and youth in residential care.
