What is the most exciting news for the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah? We finally received our tax exemption determination letter from the IRS and yes, we are now officially a 501(c)(3) organization and further classified as a “public charity.” WRC is now qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts and all these contributions are deductible under section 170 of the Code. We have posted the letter for your viewing on our “About Us” page under “Official Documents,” please feel free to review the document.

The effective date of exemption is February 19, 2009, so all donations as of this date are retroactively tax-exempt—this is good news for all of our supporters and Founding Membership holders who have helped to keep us going with their generous contributions.

We recently released a golden eagle named “Samak” and still have another (“Crash”) to nurse back to health for release very soon. We are caring for approximately 200 birds right now from hummingbird youngsters, pelicans, a peregrine falcon just to name a few as well as our celebrity golden eagle, Crash. It is that time of year where we have to get able-bodied birds out before the weather changes to prevent keeping them over the winter unnecessarily. Not only is it good for the birds, it gives our volunteers and DaLyn, our Wildlife Specialist, a much deserved break and allows us to concentrate on getting our education department up and running—we have several non-releasable birds to transfer and/or train to become education birds for facilities around the country. You’ve heard of “Spring Cleaning” well in the bird rehab business we call it “Winter Cleaning” and we’ve got lots of that to do also!

Now more than ever we need your support. WRC receives no funding from state or federal government and can only survive and provide our services through the thoughtful and generous donations of caring people like you. Please consider giving a tax-exempt donation today by visiting our “Donate” page at www.wrcnu.org/pages/donate or mailing a check to our mailing address at:

Thank You!
