Turns out I’d filed the correct papers with the State of Connecticut, but didn’t include the certified copy with my 501 (c) 3 package. So it’s still good. I need to ask for more time to get the copy out to the IRS.
We’ve now raised with a bit of effort around 600 dollars. That’s not including some equipment. It will not go too far, but it’s a wonderful start. I will be posting more updates on this as time goes by.
