501(c)3 Achieved!

The Leather & LGBTQ Cultural District has passed another milestone, in obtaining its 501(c)3 tax-exemption letter from the IRS.  This means that — among other things — donations to the Cultural District can be tax deductible.

The Cultural District will continue to use SOMArts — another 501(c)3 organization that serves as a cultural hub within our part of the City — as its fiscal agent, safeguarding our funds and administering any grants that we receive from the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development or other San Francisco agencies.  But having our own 501(c) status is an important achievement, and will help the organization achieve its goals.

So hurrah!
