We’re a 501c.3!
Two years ago Laura B. and Giovanni G. (founder of LAM) got inspired to make a difference in the life of young underrepresented students by pairing them with LAM members for a mentorship program. The program has evoled to include career fair participation at high schools and University visits for these students. We’ve paired over 100 mentors/mentees and hope to continue this growth!
With the help of LAM Member Masha as our pro-bono lawyer, we have been approved as a 501c.3 organization by the IRS!
What does this mean?
Section 501(c)(3) is the portion of the US Internal Revenue Code that allows for federal tax exemption of nonprofit organizations. An entity must be organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes. One of the biggest distictions is that donations are tax deductable and we can apply for various grants! This source of income will help our organization grow, hire individuals, and really make an impact.
With this, EDGE is currently in a high momentum stage of growth. EDGE is a three board-member organization: Laura, Giovanni, and Jorel with new upcoming volunteers as various Committee Chairs. We continue to look for qualified mentors and volunteers.
