20 Oct SLAMT1D, Inc Receives IRS 501c3 Tax-Exempt Status!
On October 15, 2014, SLAMT1D, Inc. received a determination from the IRS that it is exempt from Federal Income Tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions to SLAMT1D, Inc. are deductible.
While we’re excited this important designation offers our supporters an important financial and tax benefit for their generosity, we know that it’s the bold, brash and creative way we support the T1D community that draws so many to our mission, tournaments and games.
We’ll continue to expand awareness of T1D and to support children, families and adults living with T1D through active, engaging sports tournaments and events. We’ll raise funds to send kids to T1D camps, connect patients and caregivers with helpful resources, and provide SLAMDiabetes Game Changer scholarships to students with T1D.
Together with all of you players, fans, volunteers and supporters, we can make life better for those with T1D.
“As someone with Type 1 diabetes and the mother of a young boy with Type 1, I have been overwhelmed with emotion each of the past two years when SLAMDiabetes has come to our community. SLAMDiabetes gives us a way to be relevant without feeling handicapped or embarrassed, and it’s mobilized our community around us in an out-of-the-box way that walks and runs just don’t do. We can’t wait for next year!”
