aka IFRM Foundation
The original IFRM Trust Fund was founded in 1977 with seed money provided by founder Jim Whited and supplemented through the sale of sing-along tapes and individual donations. It was originally conceived as a charitable trust for the purpose of perpetuating the Fellowship by paying for music publishing and distribution expenses, including MUSIC NOTES, the annual IFRM Newsletter. In addition, the funds now support the publication of a monthly e-bulletin, STACCATO.
In 2007, IFRM, Inc., our Foundation, became formally recognized as a 501C-3, tax-exempt "charitable organization" in the US. Donors to the Foundation can now claim tax deductions; please consult your tax preparer.
