We’re delighted to…

We're delighted to announce that the IRS has awarded Strange Horizons provisional tax-exempt status as a publically supported non-profit organization. This determination is valid until the end of 2004, at which time they'll make a final determination (which we expect to be favorable). What this means for us: we can now apply for arts grants, and any individuals and organizations that donate to us will receive a tax deduction for doing so. This is terrific support for our long-term financial stability.

What this means for you: a) any donations made to Strange Horizons in 2000, 2001, and 2002 are tax-deductible (though you may want to consult a tax attorney before claiming donations from 2000 or 2001); b) any donations made in 2003 and 2004 will be tax-deductible. If your workplace offers a matching funds program for charitable donations, you may also apply to that program for your contribution to Strange Horizons. If you donated more than $250 to us in the previous years, please contact our managing editor, Brian Peters (management@strangehorizons.com), for a copy of the necessary documentation to support your IRS claim.

Thank you so much for your support, in the past, present, and future!
