April 15 is tax day - but not for From Our Hearts. As a not for profit, our accounting to the IRS is not due until the end of May. Although From Our Hearts does not pay taxes, all donations, expenses and cards mailed over to our troops have to be accounted for, recorded and reported to the IRS.
Just a reminder - no personal information is shared. We request that each contribution arrive with an inventory sheet, contact information, etc. because From Our Hearts has to account for all the cards, supplies and monetary contributions as well as the disbursement of it all.
Simply put, From Our Hearts is only required to report final numbers - that is all. No names, addresses and even the individual card counts are not disclosed to anyone.
We wish to thank all of our contributors for keeping us so very, very busy!
