In the past year REACH Advocacy has incorporated as a not-for-profit organization under New York State law. In July we submitted our application to the Internal Revenue Service to become a 501(c)(3) organization.
From last October through February we worked with Causewave to help shape our organization’s purpose and vision and to outline what we need and expect in a Board. Since then we have been interviewing people to join our Board and hope to have a full slate of twelve members by the end of the year.
We have begun to create the Committees necessary to execute our mission; you can see the present committee structure below.
