I have good news regarding the Emmazing Grace Foundation. This morning a very nice IRS agent called. She said that she doesn't typically make these types of phone calls, but felt a need to this time. She usually passes phone call duties off to someone else. She asked that I make 2 changes to the 501(c)3 application and fax it back to her. She will then approve the tax exempt status!! She confirmed it will be retroactive back to date of incorporation and should only take 2-3 weeks to receive the approval letter.
It's been a rough few days and this good news is much needed!
