Fundraising for Fitness
I'm having a Free Boot Camp on Sunday July 14, 2013. We are raising money to provide wellness services for homeless women and kids in San Jose.
The Boot Camp is free - we are asking for a voluntary $10 donation to participate.
I've been volunteering my fitness and wellness services at one of the Homeless Shelters in San Jose. The women and children have been giving me such positive feedback on the benefits of the activities we do together. They have been feeling more optimistic and are learning about the importance of fitness and taking "mental vacations".
Some have requested I come more often and others suggested I expand to other shelters in the area. So, I'm doing it!
I'm applying for non-profit status for my services. This will allow me to apply for grants to cover expenses and spread the love.
The application fee for the IRS is $400. I am asking everyone I know to help improve these women's lives by donating $10 (or more :) ) so I can submit the application by April 30th.
Donations of any amount can be sent to:
P.O. Box 445
Alviso, CA 95002-0445
I will send you a letter acknowledging the amount for your records. Once 501(c)(3) status is granted you can write off the donation. Btw - Sending cash through the mail is not the best idea.
Thank you so very much in advance!
