AMBCC receives 501(C)3 Approval!

Jai Baba Dear Members & Friends of AMBCC,

We are very pleased to announce that our application for the 501(C)3 non-profit tax-exempt status has been approved by the IRS. This allows contributions to the Avatar Meher Baba Center of Chicago (AMBCC) to be tax-deductible (under section 170 of the code). In addition to the contributions, we are also now “qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts under section 2055, 2016 or 2522 of the code.”
Over the next week or two, Jim Knutson will be sending out individual receipts and summaries of your past contributions for 2010 and 2011… The effective date of exemption is based on our incorporation date in the state of Illinois, which is as of November 9, 2010. You may be able to file amended tax returns depending on your individual tax scenario….Please call Jim at (630) 272.0097, or email him at ( with any questions, but most importantly, be sure to also consult your tax adviser!
Thank you Baba! and all His generous and loving lovers who have supported Baba’s new Center in Chicago thus far, and into the future, per His Wish & Will.
Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai!
