Changes on the Way

Your FSM Board voted recently to proceed with obtaining our own non-profit status.  When we organized in 2010 we set a goal of taking this step within five years.  We currently operate under the umbrella of the Friends of State Parks (FSP) and their non-profit status.  The goal of FSP is for all Chapters to eventually obtain their own non-profit status.  We have a member who is a retired attorney that is assisting us with this process at no cost.  Our first step is incorporation followed by application to IRS.  We will keep you apprised of the progress.
