This looks promising, I think, regarding the "unexpected and unusual gift" condition as regulated by the IRS. http://charitylawyerblog.com/2009/10/28/nonprofit-law-jargon-buster-public-support-test/
Very impressive story, and the way you tell it. But, not to dampen things, should the organization take care to rein in, or just slow down, the program growth, with its accompanying costs, until they get their fund-raising program strong enough to keep up?
Nothing could be more disheartening to hard-working folks developing and implementing useful and beneficial programs, than to find they cannot pay for them.
You can understand that, from my literal and figurative distance, I might not grasp the sense of things there. So, these comments are just off the top. Just to try to help and get some others to chime in.
And, thank you for your kind words.
