AE Gains 501(c)(3) Status

All donations are now tax-deductible. 


We are officially approved as 501c3!  What does that mean? Simply put, we are a non-profit organization.  However, lets be clear, designation as a non-profit does not mean that the organization does not intend to profit, but rather the organization has no ‘owners’ and that the funds realized in the operation of the organization will not be used to benefit any owners.  

The term 501(c)(3) status means that we have been approved by the IRS as a tax-exempt charitable organization.  Simply put, our donors should “write off” their financial support to AE.  

Which leads me to encourage you to think about supporting AE during the upcoming holiday (aka Giving) season.  We have corporate giving opportunities as well.  If you are interested in supporting AE with a financial, in-kind or corporate gift, please contact our Director of Development at
