We have finally received our letter of determination from the IRS. It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Upper Pinellas Amateur Radio Club, Inc. is now a 501(c)(3) not for profit, public charitable organization. This means that individuals and organizations can make tax deductible donations to our club and we can apply for grants.
Additionally, we are eligible to receive donations from AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile allows buyers to donate a small percentage of their purchase(s) to a charity, or charities, of their choice. How it works: Amazon will donate .5% of your eligible purchase at no cost to you to UPARC. The only difference is you must login to AmazonSmile instead of Amazon.com. AmazonSmile works with Prime and offers the same products at the same prices and provides the same service. Paste this link into your browser, bookmark it and always use it to log in and it will configure AmazonSmile with UPARC as your donation charity:
