USCF Obtains 501 (c)(3) Status Print E-mail
April 2, 2014
After nearly two years of processing, the USCF's tax exempt status has changed from 501(c)(4) to 501(c)(3).

"I am excited to announce that yesterday we received a letter from the IRS approving our 501(c)(3) status. This is an important step for the USCF", said Executive Director Jean Hoffman, who has a wealth of experience with  501(c)(3) organizations.  

The USCF can now accept tax-deductible donations by check. Look for more details and alternative ways to donate and volunteer in the coming weeks. Login as a member to the USCF Issues Forum to join in the detailed discussion about this change.
