501 ( c ) ( 3) STATUS


Statement:

GAF appreciates concerns that alumni have raised regarding our non-profit status, and continues to take every precaution to safeguard our 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) identification number. Our accountant has assured us that both our state and federal documentations are in order and all requirements have been fully met. Postings you may have seen on the internet are not current and will be updated soon. According to tax officials it may take up to six months before government postings are corrected. We are monitoring both the Internal Revenue Service and State Franchise Board websites and will inform you as soon as the updates are made. Meantime, we encourage you to continue to advise us on any concerns or suggestions you may have. We want to serve our Garfield Alumni and school at the highest level possible, and will makes every effort to respond fully and promptly to your inquiries. Thank you for your continued interest and support of our school and Foundation. The Garfield Alumni Foundation
