A great day for the HCH!
After many weeks of waiting we received today the “letter of determination” from the IRS certifying that the Hilltop Children’s House is, in fact, an Ohio non-profit corporation, and is a public charity (as opposed to a private foundation).
This determination opens up many additional fundraising avenues to us, like GoFundMe. The only additional piece is waiting to be listed officially on the IRS website so the world can see it for themselves. This can take up to an additional 30 days since, according to our attorney, the ever-helpful Jim Hostetler, the IRS only updates that online list once per month.
All donations to HCH are fully tax deductible, and with the upcoming push to raise the money to purchase the building that is welcome news indeed!
