We will need to verify prospective tenants and have a yearly follow-up. Our scale is small, aiming to build one accessory dwelling unit this year and 3 homes next year, but hope to multiply in the following years.

That’s why it's a civil right,” one expert said. Excerpt: Throughout the pandemic, as blind people, like everyone else, became increasingly dependent on websites to purchase goods, one of the fastest-growing companies that works with clients like Oreo cookies and Energizer batteries to make their websites more accessible has been engulfed in an increasingly contentious relationship with blind people. Many blind people say its product is making it harder for them to navigate the web. In recent months, blind people and disability advocates have been speaking out on social media and suing companies that use AccessiBe. Blind people say AccessiBe, which is supposed to automatically make websites more compatible with the screen readers blind people rely on to access the internet, has prevented them from all sorts of normal activities online, like paying rent, teaching a class or buying Christmas gifts. AccessiBe is the largest automated accessibility company on the market Forum Post: RE: Need advice on becoming 501c3 to Join Tech Soup, 13 May 2021 10:00:00 GMTcaa7681b-025a-49ce-809f-7435bfe4d232:499b4544-ce06-4b3e-b51b-c836a2f59a16Efficient_Life_Church All of the companies listed require even a church have IRS recognition. It is illegal to discriminate against a church. The IRS cannot require IRS recognition so none of the companies on your list should. Separation of Church and State is essential and is the reason the IRS does not require recognition. If the companies on your list discriminate against churches, they should not be allowed on your list. Please give me the contact info of your legal department. I'm sure this isn't the first time a church objected.

If I’m a church without RECOGNITION I’m out of luck! How is that helping? What good is it if I can’t proceed? Did you read what I originally wrote? I’m not 501c3. WE have D-14 recognition as a Religious Organization only. If that is good enough for the state of Florida why not for Tech Soup? In practice, you are working with the IRS to force churches into 501c3 recognition which is against the laws of the Constitution. A church is not required to have 501c3 recognition. If you require what the IRS does not you are breaking the law. A church cannot be compelled into a union with the Government. That is essential. I'll be consulting with some experts on this matter. I believe you are in violation of the law.

CBS This Morning reports on a family helping book vaccine appointments for strangers:… Grant Kimball, a junior at Norwalk High School in Iowa, started a  Facebook page  to help people schedule appointments to get vaccinated.  The John Hopkins Center for Health Equity offered some ideas on how volunteers could help.” Now, these efforts are happening in other countries, including Canada and India. In India, the focus is more on getting oxygen and ventilators, the most critical need, than vaccine appointments. The efforts in India are profiled on this thread on the TechSoup Community .  An example of a Canadian effort is Vaccine Hunters Canada . While these are all excellent virtual volunteering examples, I just don't have the bandwidth to study them - to find out how volunteers are recruited and onboarded, how volunteers are screened, supervised and supported, how privacy is ensured, how success is measured, what tech tools are most valuable, etc.  Forum Post: Quickbooks Premiere non-profit order quantities, 12 May 2021 16:51:00 GMTcaa7681b-025a-49ce-809f-7435bfe4d232:af66fcfe-d105-4caa-8d92-233ba12c5e6adirjfbc Our organization needs only 2 licenses for QB Premiere non-profit.
