When did Dilly's Place Start, and What Does It Mean To Be A Non Profit?
Dilly's Place started 1/12/09 with $20 and a prayer. We held our first fundraiser in April of the same year. Dilly's place Inc. became a non-profit in 2010. A nonprofit refers to what the tax code classifies as a "Charitable" or 501(c)(3) organization. A nonprofit uses its surplus revenues to further achieve its mission. A for profit organization's shareholders receive the profits or dividends.
