FINALLY! Fourteen months after we established GivingVu.org, Inc. and 10 months after submitting our application to the IRS for nonprofit tax exemption, GivingVue received its approval letter. GivingVue, as of the IRS stamped approval letter dated June 26, 2014, is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit corporation. [See the 501(c)(3) approval letter below.]

Thanks to the generous contributions of our "FaithVu Founders", GivingVu's Board of Directors approved development of a FaithVu "lite" app. The "lite" app, while not reaching the full vision for this app, will provide a captivating social prayer experience for users. GivingVu's board decided it was best to get a FaithVu "starter" (rapid prototype) app launched soon because that can only help garner the additional support needed to build the full app. The FaithVu "lite" app is scheduled to launch on iOS by mid-June.

After more than 4 months of waiting for the IRS to review and make a determination on GivingVu's application for 501(c)3 nonprofit status, GivingVu is informed by the IRS, in a letter stamped January 3, 2014 with a notice date of December 12, 2013, that our application has just been assigned to an 'Exemption Organization' specialist and that it will likely be another 3-6 months before the IRS completes our application review. [See the letter below.] WE CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER TO DEVELOP AND DEPLOY THIS GREAT PROJECT as an official non-profit. So, we're raising funds now - believing that by the time our supporters file their 2014 taxes, we'll have an official determination from the IRS.
