Update from FOF

July 2011: Good news

Christmas came in July for Friends of FUNDAL this year! The IRS reviewed the application from Friends of FUNDAL, and granted the organization status as a tax-exempt public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. The effective date for this tax-exempt status is June 18 of 2009.

We appreciate the commitment this represents from the US government to encourage US tax payers to support educational and other charitable work in Guatemala.

Thank you to all of you who have made donations to Friends of FUNDAL, whether before or after you learned of our 501(c)(3) status. I look forward to sharing information with you about grants we have given to programs in Guatemala in the days to come.

Grace Bullen, FOF Chair
