The Friends of Mirror Lake Library is now a 501(c)(3) organization. Many thanks to attorney Nicole Nate and Friends President Wayne Finley for updating our bylaws and getting us this 501 (c) (3) status. We received approval on July 21, 2014, but the status is effective as of January 21, 2012.
Section 501(c)(3) is the portion of the US Internal Revenue Code that allows for federal tax exemption of nonprofit organizations. It is regulated and administered by the US Department of Treasury through the Internal Revenue Service.
The Friends group is now eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in accordance with Internal Revenue Code Section 170.
