Frequently Asked Questions
Is moms making moves a 501(c)3 organization?
Yes! Moms Making Moves is a tax exempt nonprofit organization.
If I make a donation now will it be tax deductible?
Yes. If you would like to deduct the value of your gift to Moms Making Moves, please ask for a receipt at the time of the donation.
What happens during a meal passout and is it safe for me and my family?
After meals are made, volunteers take to the streets to pass out meals or deliver the meals to homes. Passing out uptown is very safe! We have volunteers from ages 4- 74 who come to passout. To make sure all volunteers feel safe, we always ask that you remain with at least one other person. If you are ever in a situation where you feel uncomfortable, it is always ok to speak up.
Passing out to homes is even easier. Drivers will be given a list of homes to deliver to (all in the same vicinity). Families will have already received a text reminder that you will be coming. You will have their contact info in case you have questions for them. When the time comes, you go to the home, knock on the door, and hand them their food. Its that simple :)
Why did Moms Making Moves decide to become an official nonprofit organization rather than continuing as a community volunteer group?
As the group expanded, we began to experience a need for larger donated spaces to hold events. Many organizations will only provide free spaces for official nonprofit organizations. In addition, many local businesses have expressed an interest in supporting us through financial or in-kind donations, however, were unable to do so because we were not an official nonprofit organization. Being a documented nonprofit opens many doors to our group and will help us to reach more homeless and at risk individuals in the Greater Charlotte area.
