Is CARE for Sandy seeking cash donations?
CARE for Sandy is not a federally registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity, which means it cannot accept cash contributions, lest its founder become responsible for all proceeds when the tax man comes a knockin' every April. It’s a grassroots effort, currently being coordinated/ web administrated/ designed/ written/ ideated by a team of one from a home office in Park Slope, Brooklyn, with the help of 2 fabulous part-time staff members. To raise funds for victims is one of our future goals.
