Beyond that, a statement on the 501(c)3 status of the organization might be nice - since the website claimed that the organization was in fact a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit.  Any light that can be shed on these issues by folks at the CRC would be much appreciated.

My recollection is that the website only stated that the 501c3 application was underway. Having sat on the board of an organization that went through a 501c3 app all the way to approval, it can be tricky, and takes a while not only to discuss the argument "for" but to get accounting and operating processes in sync with IRS expectations.
