As of December 21, 2015, the Urban Entrepreneurship Initiative, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt not-for-profit corporation. This certification will permit tax-deductible donations to the organization, and will allow UEI to be even more effective in carrying out its work on behalf of entrepreneurs who wish to make a real difference in urban communities. Thanks to Erin Bonahoom of Canvas Legal (formerly Sadek Bonahoom) for shepherding our application through the process. So if you feel so inclined, go ahead and try out the shiny new “Donate” button on our web site! We appreciate the support we’ve received so far, and are planning to make an even bigger impact going forward as a result of our new status.
