As the New Year begins, we are pleased to announce that A Cause for Crafting is now officially recognized as a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization.
What does that mean?
1. We can now offer our crafters a tax deduction for the items sold on our site. (Yeah!)
2. Better deals for bank fees and the like. (Yeah!)
3. Of course, we are now tax exempt.
4. Accountability. This is something we welcome because we believe strongly in openness and honesty. We want both our crafters and customers to be able to trust us implicitly.
Thanks to all of our customers and craftspersons who have believed in us as we took our first tentative steps on this journey. We've learned a lot during our first year and plan to use what we have learned to grow and improve. We look forward to welcoming new friends, both craftpersons and customers, as we begin our second year, doing a little bit of good, one lovingly crafted item at a time.
