Did you know that Durham Atletico has a nonprofit fiscal sponsor? We do, and this means you can make contributions that may be tax-deductible.
Since 2016, Durham Parks Foundation has been our fiscal sponsor. This means that the foundation will accept mission-aligned contributions on our behalf and send donors a tax letter. The foundation then passes the funds to us to use for their intended purpose, minus a modest administrative fee.*
You probably haven't heard much about this because up until now we have not pursued any efforts that required major fundraising. This is changing, however, beginning with fundraising we are doing for our youth summer futsal academy.
We will have more information about projects as they are developed. In the meantime, we are preparing for a fundraising celebration on June 5 at American Tobacco. It runs from 5:30-7:30pm, and the suggested donation is $20. There will be an open bar and a raffle, too!
*The official disclaimer is: The Durham Parks Foundation is the nonprofit fiscal sponsor of Durham Atletico; all donations are tax-exempt to the extent of the law.
