Donations Help Fulfill Our Mission
Project Linus is comprised of nearly 400 chapters across the United States. All are directed by volunteers who work from their homes. Chapter Coordinators are authorized by Project Linus National Headquarters for an assigned geographical area, and are entitled to the benefits and privileges enjoyed by our 501c3 tax exempt status. Chapter Coordinators are accountable to Project Linus National Headquarters for local activities and funds. Project Linus is audited annually by an independent certified public accounting firm and files an annual 990 tax return with the IRS. Our 990 return is a public document. You may request a copy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

There are three basic ways Project Linus donations are used:
These are expenses directly related to the chapter. They are supported by the donations that are collected locally and submitted to Project Linus National Headquarters for deposit. Chapter Coordinators may then submit receipts for local purchases or use funds for items provided by Project Linus National Headquarters. 80% of all donations collected on the local level are available for use by the chapter coordinator at her discretion, within organizational guidelines. All monetary donations without exception are required to be submitted to Project Linus National Headquarters for deposit and to be reported to federal and state agencies.
General Program Support
