Financial Accountability

Shared Blessings is a 501-C3 nonprofit organization. The funds you entrust to us are prayerfully and responsibly managed.

When did Shared Blessings receive IRS Certification?
On October 9, 2002, the Internal Revenue Service issued a determination letter recognizing Shared Blessings as a 501-C3 organization.

What does being a 501-C3, tax-exempt organization mean?
The term “tax-exempt,” when used in reference to nonprofit organizations, generally refers to the net profits (proceeds over and above expenses) of an organization being exempt from federal and/or state income tax. While a nonprofit organization can be established by incorporating, the entity is not automatically tax-exempt upon creation with the state. Tax-exemption can usually be achieved only through applying for and receiving Internal Revenue Service (IRS) approval.

Are my donations tax deductible?
Yes-because we are a 501-C3 tax-exempt organization, your donation is fully deductible to the full amount allowed by law, however, please check with your tax preparer for specifics on your particular donation.
