We are pleased to announce that our 501c3 status was recently granted, enabling Tapestry to apply for new grants. Our status is retroactive to our application date, which means that all new donations – and those given since June 25, 2012 – are now officially tax deductible.
Charter Petition Status
Tapestry’s board worked with DeKalb over the summer to provide requested additions and make minor revisions to our charter petition. The revised petition is currently in the county’s hands and is slated to be presented to the DeKalb BOE at their September 9th board meeting. If approved, the petition will immediately be forwarded to the state, who has assured us that we are still on track to open in 2014. Updates coming in mid-September!
Petition Pledge Drive
For those of you who generously made pledges during our Petition Pledge Drive this spring, please be on the lookout for word of our approval and a request to honor the pledge with a donation.
Future Tapestry Staff
While Tapestry won’t begin an official staff search and hiring process until our petition is approved, those interested in future employment are invited to send a cover letter outlining experience, qualifications, and interest along with a CV/resume to Tonna Harris-Bosselmann at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are especially interested in finding an exceptional school leader as early as possible.
Thanks so much for your support during this process. We couldn’t do it without you! – The Tapestry Founding Board
