It’s Official!

Newtown Earth Day is proud to announce it is now officially a public charity with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. Contributions donated to Newtown Earth Day are fully tax-deductible retroactive to the founding of the organization. Newtown Earth Day is also now eligible to apply for government and foundation grants, which will further broaden its access to resources and strengthen its ability to serve our community.

“Obtaining 501(c)(3) status is a major milestone for Newtown Earth Day,” remarked Chairman and Co-founder Dan Holmes. “This opens many doors for us to expand fundraising activities and fully realize our goals as a charitable, community based organization facilitating environmental education and awareness in Newtown. Through our annual event and High School scholarship, we hope to make Newtown a little ‘Greener’ and inspire our youth to pursue careers in environmental science and technology.”
