After a year of forms and paperwork, the Caye Caulker Humane Society has been notified that it has been approved as a 501c3 non-profit by the US government (IRS). Anyone who files a US tax return can now deduct donations to the Humane Society from their US tax return. The link to the Humane Society's web site is listed here in case anyone needs to accumulate a few tax deductions or just wants to support this great organization.

Yes, a lot of repeat visitors from all countries have been very supportive of the Humane Society both financially and as volunteers. Residents of the Caye are supportive as well. It's particularly enjoyable to work with the local children and see them embrace the responsibilities of pet ownership.

Thanks, Cooper. The designation adds legitimacy to the organization. When you read post such as "know before you donate" (I got that email - glad it was pulled) it reminds us all that not all organizations or individuals asking for money are legit.

To get a 501c3 an organization has to provide its aritcles of incorporation, its bylaws and background info on all of its officers. This info is scrutinized and typically, and in the case of the CCHS, more info is requested. All of this done with the goal of vetting out organizations who exist solely for "self promotion or enhancement."

It is also importnant to note that this desigation should also help the CCHS become eligible for international assistance grants as many groups who give funds to organizations such as this use the 501c3 as a first cut to determine if the org will even be on the list to qualify for review. So it's a good step forward - and the post about fraudulent fund raising compelled me to add more info.
