So what's the deal?  If CAICA is a non-profit, why not just provide a link for potential donors to verify their donation is indeed, tax-deductible?  That's what ISAC does.

Izzy lists CAICA as a "Washington Non-Profit" for her fundraiser.

http://www.secstate.wa.gov/charities/search.aspx

Anyone see CAICA listed here?

Anyone find CAICA on the IRS Publication 78 website?

www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=96136,00.html

Perhaps Izzy could just post her Non-Profit status to assure all contributors that their donations are tax dedutible.  That's what ISAC does.

Near as I can tell, CAICA is listed as a corporate non profit, but not registered as a charitable org with Washington State nor the IRS.  If this is not correct, please post correct info or a link.

Re the CHIP-IN fundraiser.  As I recall, the goal was to raise $10,000 before the fundraiser ends in August.

To date, since April 18, 2007 total donations to CAICA is $100.00.

Not sure why Isabelle claims donations are "tax-deductible" given there is no information on her website or numerous blogs for consumers to verify for themselves, unlike ISAC who provides a link to the IRS website where one can confirm their status as a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization.

Perhaps the best way to resolve this issue is for Zehnder to follow ISAC's lead and make this information easily accessible to potential donors.

Personally I would be loathe to make a donation to any organization that doesn't fully disclose the status of their organization or fails to provide any sort of documentation whatsoever.

Personally, others may be loathe to donate to a so-called child advocacy website whose owner works with PURE, states that programs may be a good option for parents with a troubled teen; advertises a FOR PROFIT coaching company on the website, has a "founder and owner" who writes parent-bashing blogs that promote a defunct program (Whitmore Academy) and praises the owners (the Sudweeks) who have broken laws in 3 countries and this blog has had many mistruths pointed out; so there appears there may be a problem with truth-telling.
Maybe that's why this fundraiser has only raised a couple of hundred dollars, so far?
