On March 8th, 2019, Friends of Golden Pond received our official determination letter from the IRS declaring us except from federal income taxes under IRS section 501c3 effective April 11, 2018. This determination declares us to be a public charity and makes all contributions made to Friends of Golden Pond since our incorporation potentially eligible for federal tax deductions.
We would like to extend a big thank you to the office of the 12th congressional district of PA for their assistance with this matter.
We are currently negotiating with a bank to secure financing in order to allow us to execute our option to purchase Camp Golden Pond. The bank is looking for a down payment on the order of $120,000 as well as personal guarantees to back the loan. If you would like more information on this process, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
