No, membership is global. Most of our meetings are via telephone conference calls and our regular communication is through email.
All donations will be acknowledged and used for the designated purposes. If no designation is made, the association will used it for the project it sees fit. 100% of donations go towards projects currently being undertaken by the association. Any administrative costs we have are covered by membership dues and fundraisers.
Apart from the joy of helping someone else, your contribution is tax- exempt and may reduce your taxes. You also get the reassurance that you have given through a legitimate entity The Duanvale Primary Alumni and Friend’s Association has been accorded the 501 C 3 tax exempt status by the US Internal Revenue Service. It means that all deductions made to it are currently tax-exempt to donors. The association does not pay sales tax another added benefit. If one were to buy something for school and buys it through the association, the amount becomes tax exempt to the door and because no sales tax is paid, it becomes cheaper. It also requires us to make our books open public scrutiny so the association is above board.
