Donate to the Seishin-Kan

We are still awaiting formal approval of our status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  Even though we registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) educational and athletic not-for-profit organization, there is also an extensive and extremely costly application process involved in obtaining IRS approval.  Until formal approval is granted, donations made to the Seishin-Kan are not tax-deductible.

Until we have raised the prohibitive application fees, we are unable to complete the application process.  Making the situation more difficult, we are not soliciting donations until we have received IRS approval, since those donations would not be tax-deductible to the donors.  Although it places us in a "Catch-22" situation, we are instead pursuing fundraising opportunities other than donations in order to obtain the funds needed to pay the exorbitant IRS application fees.

Alternatives to Monetary Donations

While we are awaiting IRS approval of our 501(c)(3) status and pursuing fundraising options other than the solicitation of donations, we encourage you to consider volunteering to assist with fundraising events as a means of supporting the Seishin-Kan and helping us achieve our goal of formal IRS approval.
