Bread for the Journey offers our nationwide chapters 501(c)3 non-profit status with the IRS. 501(c)3 status helps to legitimize the work you’re doing in your community by offering your donors a tax-deduction for their financial contribution.

This means you won’t have to hire an attorney, spend your financial resources, struggle through writing your Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws, file with the IRS, or even cross your fingers for approval. We’ve taken care of these steps for you. And there isn’t any waiting time either; you are instantly granted approval by virtue of being an affiliated chapter of Bread for the Journey.

You will need to file for non-profit status in your state but we provide you with template forms. All you need to do is fill out the forms, turn them in, and wait for approval. It’s as simple as that. And with a 100% approval rate, we know you don’t need to worry about being turned down.
