Nonprofit Status. ArtWorks applied to
Fractured Atlas on March 18. 2014 for nonprofit status.
We expect to hear back from them that they accepted our
application by April 15, 2014. At the next ArtWorks
meeting we want to discuss how to determine which
categories of our monies received should be tax exempt
for donors, with the help of Fractured Atlas. NOTE:
ArtWorks has been approved for fiscal sponsorship by
Fractured Atlas - more on this later.
Next Meeting: Tuesday, May 13, 8:30am at the Artist
Business Sponsor Program. Burdette is working
with Tim to compile the business sponsor list and to
distribute a short list of businesses for individuals in
the working group to contact.
