Handmade has several affiliated groups throughout the US and the world. What does it mean to be an affiliate? An affiliated group donates handmade comfort scarves to shelters for abused women in their own community in the same way as we donate them in our community. For the most part, affiliates find their own sponsors, solicit their own donations, and recruit their own volunteers. On the rare occasion that we receive a huge yarn donation, one so big that it is more than we can handle, we offer to share some of it with our affiliates, but they donate the cost of shipping as would any one to whom we send yarn. Affiliates do not take advantage of our status as a 501(c)3; if they want or need such an exemption, they apply for it themselves. The advantage of being an affiliate is that we share our experience with them, help them get started, tell them what works for us, share patterns, etc.
Handmade Especially for You, a IRC 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, salutes its growing list of Affiliates. These independent Affiliates share Handmade's goals and support its mission through their independent activities. Because Affiliates are independent, each Affiliate's obligations and tax status are its own.
