In order to continue to advance our mission, the Association applied for, and received, 501(c)(3) tax status from the Internal Revenue Service on October 19, 2007. This status allows the Association to be treated as a public charity and contributions to the Association are now tax deductible under section 170 of the Code. The Association is also “qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2522 of the Code.” It does not matter if you designate your gift for scholarship or operating funds — any gift to the Association is now tax deductible!

Alumni Tree of Life

Donations over $100 will be recognized on the Association’s Tree of Life. The Tree sits proudly by one of the entrances into the “new gym.” At the next Hematite sporting event, be sure to come and check it out. You might just spot a familiar name, or even your own! There are lots of leaves left to fill, and as always, your donations are more than welcome. The donation levels are as follows:

  • Bronze leaf for donations of $100 to $249
  • Silver leaf for donations of $250 to $499
  • Gold leaf for donations of $500 to $1,000
  • Foundation Rock for donations of over $1,000
