501(c)(3) Tax Exemption Granted

We have received notification from the US Internal Revenue Service that our 501(c)(3) status has finally been granted. That means that donations are full tax exempt for US taxpayers, that our income is tax exempt, and also that we can get a number of benefits as a bona-fide credentialed nonprofit. Congratulations all! The letter is attached. (See application announcement for the full 501(c)(3) application packet and the Foundation organizing documents).

the greatest

Am currently biking in Portugal receiving the usual outstanding hospitality from amazing WS hosts. Since 2009 i have stayed with over 100 ws hosts, and as a resident of Missoula, Montana, home of Adventure cycling, I've also welcomed over a hundred guests. It is the greatest bike support imaginable. Thanks for the good work. Donation coming soon. Ethel MacDonald
