Today, RIM is Officially a 501C3
Yes that’s right, We’re EXCITED to announce RIM is officially a 501c3 organization! In 2011 RIM was simply a God given vision on paper. This vision and calling from God,was like fire in my bones. I had to move forward. Determined to do so, I prayerfully sought guidance and officially obtained our Employee Identification Number in December, 2011. With no financial commitment from my community but strong Divine guidance, I used my personal income and savings and began to work with young teenage girls within my church community on a voluntary basis; providing group therapy and activities, motivational talks, workshops and trainings. There were honestly moments I was very discouraged and felt under qualified or prepared for this gargantuan vision. Nevertheless, my faith in God allowed me to move forward past my doubts and fears. As a result, RIM established a professional board of Directors and team to move forward in accomplishing our mission. God has brought us thus far and will certainly lead us all the way….
Being an official 501c3 organization means we are tax exempt from Federal Income Tax andany donations or contributions made to RIM are tax deductible. We are qualified to receive tax deductible, devices, transfers or gifts as it relates to our needs to move forward in accomplishing our mission of Bringing Hope, Healing & Empowerment to undiscovered girls and women.
We are moving forward in full force with greater determination and diligenceand look forward to the new opportunities and partnerships that will result from our status. We also look forward to expanding our team in order to fully serve our population of high school girls and women.
