General Biz Info
Cleaning up Glitter, Inc. is (almost) a nonprofit literary organization. Our EIN is 83-4530859. As an almost-nonprofit, we abide by a code of ethics, conflict of interest policy, and govern as a board; none of us are paid to do any of this; all fees and donations made to us go right back to maintaining our online journal and submission software, covering legal fees and insurance, and eventually will be used to provide programming in the community.
Cleaning up Glitter was established as a literary journal as a way to empower new and emerging writers to share their experiences with others. As a nonprofit, we are building a mission-focused community of readers and writers who are committed to helping us fulfill our longer-term plan of providing literary and arts programming to at risk youth, under-represented groups, and adults affected by mental illness. While we are in our beginning stages, the support you provide today helps make it possible for us to take the necessary steps today, to reach our longer-term goals. Thank you for believing in our mission!
At present, Cleaning up Glitter is entirely funded by the founder, with no regrets. The basic costs include our web hosting fees, Submittable account, and insurance and legal fees; our bare bones budget (ie expected expenses) for 2019 is $2,300. Once we are fully approved by the IRS and can apply for grants, secure sponsorships, and more, we will be growing our efforts to include writing seminars, workshops, community programs, and more. With your support we can meet our goals sooner.
