The time we will spend together in July is a time to share what is mentioned above.    Please bring your questions and observations for all of us to learn what each of us have learned over the past 17 months.

Observations to discuss in addition to YOUR burning questions!
  • Have you reviewed the requirements and applied for the Employee Retention Credit Program?   Why and or Why not
  • Cryptocurrency as a gift... Should you accept? Tax consequences for the Donor? Reporting and Tax Consequences for the Donee? Do I, the organization need help in this transaction?
  • Number of Grant Requests appear to be down to Private Foundations and to Major Donor’s/ Investors.   Why is this???
  • What have the results of donations been over the past 17 months compared to the previous 2 years and why?
