More Good News!

As of April 19th, 2023 we are officially recognized by the IRS as a private foundation, granting exemption from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3).  Donors can deduct contributions they make to Del Norte Place Neighborhood Association (DNPNA) under IRC Section 170.  We also are now qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522. 

We hit the ground running with 2 fund raisers over the weekend with our Earth Day Neighborhood Plant Sale on April 22nd, and our assisting Abby Guiver with her estate sale on the same weekend.  Abby was very generous to donate 50% of sale proceeds to the Del Norte Place Neighborhood Association.  These two events grossed us just over $1,800!  All those who donated and those who purchased from the plant sale can opt to claim charitable donation status on your contributions and purchase as is listed within the IRS guidelines.  We are so grateful to all of our neighbors and those who have provided patronage for our events.  We continue to move onward and upward as we anticipate future events for the benefit of our historic 96 year old neighborhood.  

 Thank you, from your DNPNA Steering Committee elected officers:
Tim Smith, Heather Finden, Michele Smith and Sharon Torre
