Dear VivaVegie Friends:
The VivaVegie Society plans to become a tax-exempt corporation by 1998.
VivaVegie is going on its sixth year of operation, and it has become glaringly apparent that without 501(c)3 status, we will be doomed to a small and less effectual size. Not until we have this status will donations be tax-deductible.
Federal status may cost us as much as $800 to $900. We are certain this investment will pay off later. With better funding, we will be better able to carry out the work desperately needed for the advancement of vegetarianism.
A vegetarian news bureau The meat industry has theirs--vegetarians need one too so the vegetarian point of view is available to the press at all times
