We need to start coming up with the bylaws for official membership. As long
as the bylaws that we come up with are restrictive enough, we can design it
such that the membership is not overcome by a corporation as was feared
before. As long as we do this within the bylaws, then we can still file for
a 501(c)(3). This would be most beneficial over any other 501(c) filing,
since donations would be tax deductable. This may not mean much to the
person donation $10 or $50, but in the future if some corporation wanted to
donate $10k, $20k, etc.. then it will mean a lot to them. Major RFC here..
Before we can file for this we need an Employer ID Number (EIN), which I have
mentioned before. This is a simple form (IRS Form SS-4), and if none of you
mind I can go ahead and get that filed.
