Non-Profit/EIN number

Hello,Two part question here.1.  Wondering if there is any update on the status of the 501C3 being available to the local groups?2.  We are working on setting up a non-profit corporation and getting our EIN number for our group.  Are there any groups that would be willing to share their vision, mission statement, and bylaws.  I think it may be helpful to see what other groups have done when we craft ours.Thanks,Susan Aldridge-LaVigneGSM 44th Lake WinnebagoSee More
