HWF has applied to the Internal Revenue Service for recognition that it is a tax-exempt charitable organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. Our EIN is 85-0500320.
When the IRS recognizes our tax exemption, which we fully expect (but cannot guarantee), the exemption will be retroactive to the date of our incorporation, March 20, 2020. Therefore, you may take a tax deduction for contributions made now to HWF. However, please understand that, if you deduct your contribution, you are taking a small risk that the IRS will fail to recognize our tax-exempt status. We certainly do not expect that outcome but we cannot make a guarantee. If that should happen, you may have to file an amended tax return later to reverse your tax deduction. Thank you for your willingness to support us.
