Fast-Aid is grieving with the rest of the off-road community in light of last night’s horrific accident at the MDR California 200 in Lucerne. Fast-Aid was born out of the need for rapid assistance for the families of racers, crews, photographers and spectators after tragedies such as this. Fast-Aid is partnering with several off-road news and media outlets to coordinate donations to assist the families and more information can be found by visiting our website at www.fast-aid.org
If you are donating specifically to help the California 200 casualties, please note “California 200” on your donation and 100% of the funds received will be applied to assisting their families in this difficult time. Donations are tax-deductible.
If you have questions or would like to help in other ways, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org

The IRS recognizes the time it takes to complete the 501(c)3 application/approval. Therefore, under federal tax law, an incorporated non-profit organization has up to 27 months to file the application for permanent 501(c)3 status. That information can be found here: http://www.irs.gov/charities/article/0%2C%2Cid=96109%2C00.html Except for churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and public charities whose annual gross receipts are normally less than $5,000, organizations will not be treated as described in section 501(c)(3) unless they notify the IRS by applying for recognition of section 501(c)(3) status.
Generally, organizations required to apply for recognition of exemption must notify the Service within 27 months from the date of their formation to be treated as described in section 501(c)(3) from the date formed. When the IRS determines that an organization qualifies for exemption under section 501(c)(3), it will also be classified as a private foundation, unless it meets the requirements to be treated as a public charity.

Dirt Digits' own Senior Production Designer and member of off-road race team GFO witnessed the accident first hand and was an immediate first responder helping with crowd control, medical supplies, communications and general medical attention to those whom were injured and or deceased. In these hard times a tragedy like this deserves special attention from everyone capable of giving, including companies such as Dirt Digits. Dirt Digits proudly jumps at this opportunity to donate 95% of Fast-Aid decal proceeds to the Fast-Aid organization.
