WWALS Watershed Coalition advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little, Santa Fe, and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida through education, awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen activities.
Treasurer Gretchen Quarterman reports she received a letter from the IRS yesterday (PDF, image):
We are pleased to inform you that upon review of your application
for tax exempt status we have determined that you are exempt from
Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue
Code. Contributions to you are tax deductible bequests, devises,
transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2522 of the Code.
This nonprofit educational public charity status for WWALS is
effective as of our date of incorporation, June 8th, 2012.
So all contributions to WWALS back to that date are officially tax-deductible.
