After many months of hard work on the part of MMGA and affiliating chapters, more months waiting for the IRS to review and grant our request to recognize our affiliating chapters, we are excited our efforts have come to fruition.

Each chapter’s letter recognizing its tax-exempt status is being mailed today. MMGA understand there will be many questions. We are eager to answer these questions and help with any issues your chapter may have. You can contact us at the email address shared below. The Board of Directors is excited that chapters will now be able to open a free bank account, apply for a raffle license from the state of Michigan, apply for grants, make purchases without paying sales tax and accept tax deductible donations from the public.

MMGA continues to accept local chapters’ applications to become a tax-exempt IRS recognized affiliate. If anyone would like information about affiliating with MMGA or has questions, please contact MMGA at info@mmgainc.org or visit our website at www.michiganmastergardener.org
