When I started Quenching Well I had a different idea in mind than God did, clearly. Even though I am constantly trying to be faithful to him I think my own ideas may get in the way sometimes.
So, through much learning, I have changed Quenching Well into a nonprofit organization. I have people wanting to give me money to help others (that they will probably never meet) have a better life! What a beautiful problem. With that said, I have been working hard behind the scenes with organizations that are fiscally sound, culturally engaged in their areas and always come back to God at the root of all things.
Tonight I am publishing our donation options under "Store" "Donate" and our virtual giving catalog at "Store" "Virtual Giving".
Please share with anyone you know who may be passionate about helping others have a good life. How can you learn when you have to walk all day to collect dirty water? How can you be present for your children when your stomach is constantly upset from parasitic water? How can you make a living for your family when you are tragically dehydrated?
We have submitted our exemption application with the IRS and expect that the IRS will determine that we are a tax exempt organization. Your receipted contribution should, upon IRS determination, qualify a charitable contribution tax reporting purposes.
UPDATE 11/9/16: WE ARE NOW a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. Tax ID # 81-4221641.
