NYS Non-For-Profit confirmation: 
Ithaca Underground now officially a New York State not-for-profit organization, Federal application is next.

On Friday, November 23rd, Ithaca Underground received written confirmation from Albany that their application for New York State not-for-profit status was approved.  This is the first major step towards the organization's ultimate goal of becoming a 501c3 not-for-profit.  The Federal application for recognition of exemption is complete, but will take some time to receive feedback. The board hopes to receive confirmation from the IRS early in the new year.

As an official non-profit organization, Ithaca Underground will have a greater ability to promote and support challenging and diverse music in an all-ages environment for years to come.

Thanks for your continuing support!

~Bubba Crumrine, President of the Board
