Sorry about the missed reply --- my life has been very hectic, and
some things have fallen through the cracks.

When you do, it might be helpful to give them document locator number
17053-134-33502-0. That number identifies our our 501(c)(3)
application.

As other posters to this thread have mentioned, the website clearly
indicated (and still indicates) that the 501(c)(3) status was pending.

As for the question of money --- I know it must be frustrating, but I
won't provide an off-the-cuff response here and risk inadvertently
saying something inaccurate. But I will say that nobody drew a salary
or earned a living from the CRC. I lived off savings and credit, and
I'm still working on paying off my debt.
