12th of September 2007: Art in All of Us is a 501(c)3 organization
Thanks to our partnership with the law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, and after more than a year procedure with the IRS, Art in All of Us has been granted a tax exempt status with the IRS in the United States.
Submitting our application to be federally recognized in the USA as a "tax-exempt" non-profit organization is an exciting time for Art in All of Us. This status will also provide several large and dynamic benefits that will serve to ensure the Art in All of Us vision to remain creative, sturdy and sustainable.
The advantages of 501(c)(3) non-profit status include:
• Worldwide recognition as a philanthropic organization that complies with legal requirements for charitable endeavors
• Increased legal protections and accountability
• Eligibility for financial grants
• Donations to CouchSurfing will be tax-deductible in the US
