Thanks to all of you, Upward Veterans has begun registration!
- To the many friends and believers -in Upward Veterans - in these forums:
As promised to you in that plea for donations, Upward Veterans has begun registration of this organization as a non-profit corporation.
Today, Upward Veterans registered with the Office of Idaho Secretary of State as a non-profit corporation named "Upward Vets, Inc." (UVI) and paid those fees. The Idaho Sectretary of State maintains a web site through which any one may check the business registration of businesses and non-profit corporations. Any of you who wish may go there and verify that Upward Vets, Inc. did register today. Although it may take a few days for the Sec State to get the documents through data entry.
Additionally, UVI submitted the documentation to obtain the required FEIN number from the IRS.
Just as soon as donations reach a level to allow UVI to submit the $350 in IRS non-profit registration fees, that last registration hurdle will be completed.
Upward Vets, Inc. wishes to thank each and every one of you who have taken an interest in this effort to aid homeless Veterans.
