We are proud to announce that Community Cat Coalition, formerly Operation Community Cat, is now a 501(c)(3) organization!
What does that mean? It means that we now have tax exempt status. The IRS grants this status to nonprofit organizations that are public charities, foundations, etc. It means that most of your donations to Community Cat Coalition are tax deductible.
Operation Community Cat started out as a small nonprofit organization with the goal of TNR and management of the stray and feral cat population in Chesnee, SC. Operation Community Cat soon grew and, Linda Kwasniewski, the initial founder of the organization, joined forces with Kris Johnson, another community cat colony manager that has been trapping cats for spay/neuter all over Spartanburg County for several years. Kris was already connected with other colony managers in various areas including Duncan and Mayo, and was also working on the formation of a nonprofit organization, so It just seemed like the best move for everyone to join forces and form one organization. Thus, Community Cat Coalition was born.
The new tax exempt status will allow Community Cat Coalition much more flexibility and freedom for raising money to support the cats in the areas we serve. Several fundraisers are in the works already. Donations can easily be made to Community Cat Coalition through PayPal. Donations are tax deductible, and you will receive an official receipt from us via email. And you can easily donate right now by clicking the donate button below.
