501(c)(3) Status Achieved!

After operating nearly two years as an independent non-profit charitable organization, separate from Kent Lutheran Church, KENT GRAND ORGAN has been granted exemption from federal income tax. Donors may now contribute directly to KGO and deduct those monetary gifts from their IRS annual obligation. Section 501(c)(3) is the portion of the US Internal Revenue Code that allows for federal tax exemption of nonprofit organizations, specifically those that are considered public charities, private foundations or private operating foundations. Our exemption is retroactive to August of 2016. Since then our donations have been processed through Kent Lutheran and our fiscal partner, Kent Downtown Partnership.
