Why Donate to GCoMM?
The primary source of funding for each GCoMM event is registration monies; however, we desire to keep the cost of registration, room, and board at a minimum. Additional funding is needed to offset the expenses associated with providing the best speakers and presenters, such as travel reimbursements, lodging, food, and honorariums. Registrants involved in charitable work and those from third-world countries will benefit significantly from lower-cost registration, meals, and accommodations, and may not be able to attend if these basic costs are not subsidized.
Our Promise to You
As we state in our IRS Form 1023 (Application for Recognition of Exemption), donations given to GCoMM will be used 1) to provide the most excellent speakers and accommodations for attendees at low registration fees, 2) to reimburse reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by event planners and organizers between events, and 3) to provide start-up funding for subsequent events.
Your Gift is Tax Deductible
On June 23, 2009, the IRS granted gcomm exemption from U.S. Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. You will receive a receipt for your gift.
