HELP SAVE OUR HISTORIC POOLS!
Funds raised will be used to pay the $120.00 filing fee to the Idaho Secretary of State, and the $600.00 filing fee for official 501(c)3 status with the IRS. Additional funds raised over the initial amount will go toward hosting a more robust and secure website.
501(c)3 status will be a powerful tool for our organization moving forward. Once approved, it will allow donors to deduct donations from their taxes. This especially helps donors in the case of larger donations. It will also enable FOBHP to pursue relevant grant opportunities seriously. It will also allow donors to provide in-kind gifts, like time, goods or services, which are also tax deductible.
Though no decisions or affiliations have been made, the 501(c)3 approval process takes months to complete.
We intend to apply ASAP, so we can have all the possible tools at our disposal to help save these pools.
You don't even have to be a pool user to make a donation. This moment is history in the making, and this decision forever defines us. Please let it define us as a community that values art, history, architecture, community, and quality of life.
Please give what you can; even a small donation adds up! Thank you so very much!!!
PLEASE TELL THE CITY THE POOLS ARE WORTH IT!
Feel free to use this template letter to send to City Council and Mayor McLean!
