Erowid goes non-profit!

I'm posting an historic letter from the good folks at Erowid.org. This is indeed very fortunate news.
(If you're an Erowid Member, you've already received this message.)
We wanted to send out this special announcement to let everyone know that after two years of dealing with lawyers and red-tape, the IRS has finally approved our new organization "Erowid Center" as a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-deductible charitable organization. This is the news we've been hoping to get! With this formal approval, donations to Erowid Center are now tax-deductible in the U.S.
Receiving IRS approval is a big step in our goal towards making the Erowid project stable and sustainable over the long term. We hope that it will help us continue to improve the quality and reliability of available information about psychaoctive plants, chemicals, technologies and practices. We plan to begin Erowid Center's daily operations on Jan 1, 2008.
Erowid Center isn't yet set up to take donations by credit card, but if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation by check in 2007, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We continue to be able to take non-tax-deductible donations through the website as usual, by credit card, PayPal, or check (www.erowid.org/donations/).
As always, we can use your contributions!
We really appreciate the support Erowid visitors have shown us over the past twelve years. Thanks from all of us.
