WHY WE CHOSE TO BE A 501(c)(3) NONPROFIT
There are many benefits to having a nonprofit 501(c)(3) designation. One of the biggest reasons is to allow our contributors and members, who make donations, to obtain a tax-deductible receipt.
As a nonprofit, we also get discounts when putting on events and other tax breaks that are listed here:
Exemption from Federal income tax;
Possible exemption from state income, sales, and employment taxes;
Reduced postal rates;
Exemption from Federal unemployment tax; and.
Because we want to be completely transparent in our activities, we have provided a separate page to help you know exactly where we are in our process to become an official 501(c)(3), where the money goes and how we run the nonprofit. Visit our page dedicated to these inquiries at Public Reporting and Transparency.
There are several ways to get involved beyond donations and membership. Please be a member, consider volunteering, being a sponsor, an advertiser or a mentor.
If you love beach volleyball and the beach, consider being a part of our tribe. Contact Laura Hendrickson at SanDiegoBIG@san.rr.com or 619-888-6743 to learn more about how to get involved.
We offer membership for those of you that support SD BIG and creating great experiences at the beach! There are 4 categories to choose from: If you love sports at the beach and having the beach well-maintained and beautiful, we encourage you to support our cause. Currently these donations will go directly to the maintenance and equipment needs for the beach volleyball courts. As we make decisions to offer other activities and events, members will have pre-registration and/or a discount to participate.
