As the year ends, we are looking back at what MAI has done in its first year of operation. It’s important to note that much of this work was accomplished due to the generous support of our fans, the donated time of the MAI Board and the hard work of the MAI staff. If you like what you read, consider a donation to the Mt. Adams Institute fund (hosted by our partner: Mount St. Helens Institute). It will keep us moving forward in 2013!
We did it! After nearly a year, MAI received notification yesterday (December 5) that we have been recognized as a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
Acquiring non profit status was one of several strategic goals that the MAI board established for 2012. It allows us to be a more effective organization that can operate independently and/or in partnership with other organizations.
Special thanks to the Sportsgrants Foundation for funding this initiative.
