The IRS 1023 application submitted by the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum has been reviewed by the Internal Revenue Service and the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum is now officially a non-profit organization! The process was lengthy, difficult – and so worth the effort. As a 501c3 public charity, the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum can accept monetary donations as well as donations of stocks, bonds, and securities, paintings, tangible property, and many other forms of donations. As we have practiced since the inception of the organization, no one in the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum receives compensation in any form. We are strictly a volunteer organization committed to the advancement of Eric Sloane and the museum he founded.
