HSO is pleased to announce: application to become a 501(c)(3) charity approved!

Hypatia Software Organization, Inc. (HSO), is now a registered United States Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization!

HSO filed paperwork to become a non-profit corporation in the State of Massachusetts. We became Hypatia Software Organization, Inc., at the end of September.  As of yesterday, we have received notice of approval for our application to become a Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States! This has been the result of many months of hard work from many team members within the organization, and we would not have made it this far without everyone’s help.

Here is what becoming a 501(c)(3) means for you:

  1. If you pay taxes to the United States government, you can donate to HSO and receive a letter stating your donation amount, which you can use as a tax break.
  2. Assurance that your donations to HSO goes toward aiding experiencers of transmisogyny , providing education that will help enable procurement of employment in coding and systems administration jobs, as well as direct charitable relief.
  3. We will continue our policy of openness and transparency, with a number of exciting new ways to showcase all the good work we are doing.
Hypatia Software would like to take this time to thank our community, our supporters and our allies.  It is because of your support that HSO was able to accomplish this important step.  We are now more able to continue our mission of offering direct aid, a nurturing community, and mentorship to those who are experiencing transmisogyny.  We at HSO are truly excited to embark on this next stage in our future.  Exciting things to come!
