Plone Foundation approved as tax deductible 501(c)(3) charity

Plone Foundation is now 501(c)(3) exempt.

The Plone Foundation received its response from the IRS: it is now a tax exempt organization classified as a public charity for a 5 year ruling period. Thanks to the efforts of Geoff Davis and Toby Roberts from the Plone Foundation, and primarily the work of Karen Sandler at the Software Freedom Law Center, we were notified amazingly quickly. (Thanks especially to Karen for the patience.) Massive kudos to the SFLC. Working with Dan Ravicher, Karen, and Eben Moglen has been a wonderful experience — thanks! So this year, you can donate money to the Plone Foundation and get a tax write-off. We will be adding links to online donation forms over the next couple of days.
