Not for Profit, All for Freedom
It’s official! After a long slog, piles of paperwork, and plenty of anxious waiting, we’re overjoyed to announce Lady Crew is now a designated 501(c)(3) organization! That seemingly small jumble of numbers and letters might not seem like much, but it’s mighty big when it comes to furthering our core mission: raising awareness of human trafficking while raising funds for anti-trafficking partners.
A 501(c)(3) designation means we’re a tax-exempt, non-profit organization. It’s so worthwhile because it allows your donations to do even more. Now not only are boosts and donations tax deductible, but also a portion of every product you buy too! You’ll get an email with every order letting you know how much of your purchase qualifies (it differs from item to item based on production cost). Everyone wins: You get a write-off. We save on costs to donate more. Partners get extra funds. Survivors get more help.
Additionally, becoming a tax-exempt organization increases our transparency. We’ve always given 100% of every shirt sale to our partners and we strive to be open about our finances, but a 501(c)(3) classification provides added assurance that we’re a trustworthy ally in the fight against the global sex trade.
Ultimately, we’re here to sell as many shirts as possible to help rescue and rehabilitate as many survivors as possible and this is a big splash of fuel on the fire. Thank you so much for your ongoing support for the mission, for Lady Crew and for whatever’s in store. Keep checking back. We’ll have more to announce soon.
