In December 1992 the IRS issued a determination letter recognizing Wiconi International as a 501 (c) 3 organization. When Wiconi became a member of the Indigenous Pathways family its 501(c) 3 was renamed and retained for the new relationship.
What does being a 501 (c) 3, tax-exempt organization mean?
The term "tax-exempt," when used in reference to non-profit 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 non-profit 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.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, because we are a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization, your donation is deductible to the full amount allowed by law. Please check with your tax preparer for specifics.
