Did you know it takes at least two years of reporting to IRS before they determine you are a "tax deductible charity" organization? Until you receive the letter of determination, donations/contributions are not tax deductible for the donors. Fundraising becomes difficult as you need to inform the donor their donation is not tax deductible. If your program is a good cause and benefits the community or other type of well-being, you should be able to get donations anyways. Fundraisers need to get creative and explain the program effectively. Grants are awesome, but usually the grantors want community donations first.

Pierrette has committed her services to the Volunteers In Medicine Clinic since 2004 and has been instrumental in the success of the Business Manager as it relates to updating and organizing its accounting software processes. Pierrette is very community driven and felt a passion for the clinic's mission and as such has volunteered her services to us for over six years. She has a very pleasant personality and a direct approach to business operations. As the business manager, I can call her even about the smallest details in QuickBooks and she always has an answer to work me through the situation. She has shown and taught me many things in the accounting world that has made me a better manager for my company. Pierrette also looks for ways in which to simplify the workload or to explain things in an easy to understand format. She has given me her knowledge and served as a resource to me when the company sought a new external firm for payroll and bookkeeping services. I thoroughly enjoy Pierrette's sense of humor and her dedication to getting the job done. Our Treasurer and Executive Director have also appreciated her commitment to the organization and see her as a skilled individual. I trust her skills and knowledge and feel we make a good team when working together. I hope Pierrette continues to give us her time and talents as our organization has improved because of her skills and abilities.
