Temple Fund, 501(c)3 Update, etc.

A truckload of recycling on its way to recycling

Temple Fund Recycling Efforts

I’ve been accumulating aluminum and other recyclables to cash in to benefit the Cabal Fang Temple Fund.  This past Saturday I took the first batch up to C&C Cullet on Route 1.  Four bags of aluminum cans, two auto batteries and 80 pounds of scrap metal earned us $50.00 to add to the Cabal Fang Temple Fund.

What’s the Cabal Fang Temple Fund?  It’s the fund to build or buy dedicated space for training and other activities.

That truckload of stuff earned us $50 toward the Temple Fund

Tax Exempt Status

After over a month of waiting, last week we received a letter from the IRS stating that they have received our application and that they are committed to responding in no more than 180 days.  I guess that means we’ll hear something by Christmas.

Bear in mind though, most organizations don’t get approved without being required to supply additional information, which could take an additional 180 days to review.  So we could still be a year away from being a bona fide 501(c)3 tax exempt corporation.

A little frustrating, but  hey — if it was easy, anybody could do it!

How Are You Going to Build a Temple?

We are going to build our temple with sheer determination, with or without donations, with or without tax exemption.  If necessary we’ll build it out of scrap metal, one redeemed aluminum can at a time, with sweat and effort and perseverance.
