nonprofit-largeThe International Energy Alliance (IEA) is extremely pleased to announce that last week it gained recognition by the state of California as a nonprofit corporation, successfully completing the IEA’s first step towards its goal of achieving Federal tax exemption under IRS code 501(c)(3). Since then, the IEA completed and submitted IRS documents required for the final step to achieve Federal tax exemption status and anticipates a response from the IRS within a short time.

Andrew Hunter, IEA founding member, explains the recent changes: “The IEA has been busy strategizing and enhancing its infrastructure which included recruiting to fill a couple of empty leadership positions in 2014. Incorporating and achieving tax exempt status is pivotal to these enhancements and to achieving our new goals. This pathway was established collaboratively by IEA members and approved by the IEA board members.”

IEA founding member, Caroline Walters, was reached for comment while in Taipei: “The IEA intends to move forward with its goals of educating the global public about energy sources and issues, and in providing the global public with educational materials examining energy sources from an apolitical view. The idea is to innovate and expand the IEA website, entice more individuals and entities to participate, and organize more energy events.”

The International Energy Alliance looks forward to future positive and exciting expansions. For fast future IEA updates, please subscribe to our IEA website.
