As of January 15, 2017, Central PA Community Housing is an officially a non-profit organization under IRC Section 501 (c) (3).
For years, our board members have filed paperwork and talked with the IRS in order to make this dream a reality. The 501 (c) (3) status means a lot of things — for one, our hard work paid off!
The non-profit status also means that your donations to the Co-op are tax deductible (wink wink). It also makes it easier for us to get food donations, whether it be from food-banks or the local Trader Joe’s.
We’re incredibly proud of the work that went into making our Co-op a non-profit organization! With the non-profit statue, we can continue our goals of being an organization that upholds the values of social responsibility, environmental sustainability, queer positivity, and egalitarianism.
