Greater Newington Charitable Society (GNCS) has been granted 501 (c) (3) status from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and has been classified as a public charity. This means donors can deduct contributions they make to GNCS under IRC Section 170 to the fullest extent allowed by law. GNCS is also qualified to receive deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522.
"We are incredibly pleased to acquire this tax-deductible status with the IRS," explains Club President Melanie Tregoning. "We thank our club member Joane London, partner at the law firm London & London, for all her time and monetary donations. Joane was instrumental in bringing this project to fruition for our organization."
Because the Club's status retroactive effective date is August 8, of 2016, contributions to GNCS made since that date are eligible as a tax-deduction — just in time for tax day!
