A New Door Opens!

Posted by worldorphanrelief on April 22, 2009

Today we received our letter of determination for tax-exempt status under IRS Code 501(c)3. Donors can now give medical supplies, funds, etc. tax-free.

This is a very big day for us, which will open many doors and opportunities for us to help orphans all over the world!Special praise go to Alex, who did all the paperwork himself!

Since our inception, two individuals have devoted much of their time and energy to helping our organization. They have made our present efforts and our hopes for the future possible.

Richard Gowen has been incredibly helpful in assisting us with tax-related questions.

Nick Castillo has very generously donated his time and web space to create the official Fishermen website.
