A seed...

Cyd Charisse Fulton, a poet in the Premier/Winter Issue, plans to host a luncheon for fellow artists in early April for them to workshop their recent works.  She will also use that get together to fundraise for aaduna .  If you have plans to raise funds, let  me know, and I will share your effort with the aaduna community.  I am sure everyone recognizes that each and every effort is a planted seed towards a bountiful garden.  And I appreciate that effort. With Form 1023 filed with the IRS, I am gearing up to identify deadlines for appropriate grants, and then the task of writing grant applications.  In addition, I will start to reach out to local corporations regarding aaduna's viability for sponsorship. I trust everyone is enjoying a wonderful St. Patrick's Day afternoon and evening.     

Another milestone....

aaduna, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit "pending approval."  All necessary paperwork is on its way to Covington, KY for IRS review and final determination.  This review can take a minimum of 30-60 days or an undetermined period of time if the file is assigned to a staff specialist.  The IRS allows organizations to operate as a tax-exempt organization while pending a final determination and receipt of the IRS letter stating the official tax status.     Please keep aaduna in mind when deciding on donations to non-profit causes. Now, on to the next task.

What is aaduna?
