Articles of Incorporation

On Friday, I mailed our amended Articles of Incorporation to the State of Michigan. I’m hoping there won’t be any issues, so that the Articles will be filed and returned quickly. Cross your fingers for me. Once returned, the Foundation can apply for 501(c)(3) status with the IRS and open a nonprofit checking account.

Personally, I have spent $20 for the filing fee for the State of Michigan and $18 for the website. That’s money out of my pocket, so you know that I am also investing not just my time, but my money, into Library Access Foundation.

In addition, I’ve recruited our first board members. Maria McCarville, the current Wayne County Librarian, and Sue Steiger, who used to work with me at the Wayne County Braille and Talking Book Library. Both have agreed to serve as founding board members. Welcome aboard, ladies!

Our new board members are probably wondering what they got themselves into, because I gave them both a bunch of promotional printouts to distribute, because a nonprofit organization sure won’t be able to do a lot of good if no one knows about it. So please, please, please share our website with everyone you know. THANK YOU!
