The MetroNOME FOUNDATION
You enjoy a pint. Kids learn to play more than just the recorder.
There’s a great big world of musical possibilities out there. And we want everyone to be able to explore them and discover what music can truly do. And beer can make that happen.
The mission of the MetroNOME Foundation is to fund and promote music education programs that focus on underprivileged youth in the Twin Cities Metro area. So, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of our beer, as well as your donations, go directly to the MetroNOME Foundation, which will in turn sponsor local organizations that share our goals, providing musical instruments, lessons and education. Monthly, we’ll post those benefactors and keep you updated on their efforts. Together, we can all sip, sing along and make a difference, knowing there’s a little more good brewed into a MetroNOME beer.
When the IRS approves a timely filed exemption application, exempt status is recognized back to the date the organization was created. Thus, while an application is pending, the organization can treat itself as exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3). For example, it must file Form 990 (instead of an income tax return) while its application is pending. However, contributors to the organization do not have advance assurance of deductibility because the organization’s exemption is pending. If the organization ultimately qualifies for exemption for the period in which the contribution is made, the contribution will be tax-deductible by the donor. Alternatively, if the organization ultimately does not qualify for exemption, then the contribution will not be tax deductible.
