Due to a filing oversight, our parent organization, Sustainable NE Seattle, has lost its 501(c)(3) tax exemption. We are working on reapplying for tax exemption. In the meantime, any membership fees or gifts you give us are not tax exempt. We will continue to serve the community at the same standard.
