Notice of Meeting to Adopt Changes to SNC Articles of Incorporation


Special Agenda Item for May Meeting

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

7:00pm at ESD 101 (4202 S. Regal Street)

At the beginning of the May 11th Southgate Neighborhood Council meeting, the Southgate Neighborhood Council officers will convene a special meeting for the purpose of voting to adopt amendments to the Southgate Neighborhood Council articles of incorporation.

These amendments will:

* Expand the statements of the purposes of the organization to provisions restricting activities to charitable purposes in conformance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

* Update all provisions required by Washington law at Chapter 24.03 RCW, Washington Nonprofit Corporation Act.

The proposed amendments will serve to qualify the Southgate Neighborhood Council for recognition by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization so contributions to Southgate are federal income tax deductible.

The proposed amendments amount to a complete substitution for the original Southgate articles of incorporation from 2008.

They are posted on the Southgate Neighborhood Council web site as SNC Articles of Incorporation Amendment Exhibit A:
