I learned that registering as a 501(c)3 is... not as easy as it sounds. The biggest obstacle seems to be that Free Tutoring Online doesn't make or spend any money! But that's part of being "free", right?
Anyway, the good news is that we've found a partner organization to sponsor the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for Free Tutoring Online tutors who tutor more than 100 hours per year. I'm so excited to be able to offer this to the volunteers who put in these long hours, and I hope we will have more people qualifying each year.
