We have received notification from the US Internal Revenue Service that our 501(c)(3) status has finally been granted. That means that donations are full tax exempt for US taxpayers, that our income is tax exempt, and also that we can get a number of benefits as a bona-fide credentialed nonprofit. Congratulations all! The letter is attached. (See application announcement for the full 501(c)(3) application packet and the Warmshowers.org Foundation organizing documents).

Dear Warmshowers Community, we know this is a time of concern for everyone around the globe due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to streamline communication and better address the current needs of our community in a timely manner, we are temporarily disabling the forums and directing everyone to the Warmshowers Facebook Group. This will allow the Warmshowers Community a centralized place for comments, questions, and concerns related to touring and hosting. As always, we ask that you follow our community guidelines when posting.
