posted on March 18, 2011

Almost after 2 years and much questioning, the NOH8 Organization founders Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley finally decided to legalize their organization as a non profit. Per the CA Attorney General, the organization was approved for non profit status on November 5, 2010.

Also on May 12, 2010, they filed IRS form 990 EZ and even requested an extension to file taxes for the term of 08/17/2009 to 12/31/2009 and it was due November 15, 2010 which it was granted by IRS and this documents are available by law for public inspection. Now the organization needs to file again IRS form 990 EZ for the term 1/1/2010 to 12/31/2010 and so each year. 


On March 6, 2011 reported that that the NOH8 campaign posted their latest collage of over 10,000 pictures. Also she stated “I started doing the math..and theres an amazing amount cash that allegedly seems to have taken in at 40 bucks a whack…10,000 pics at $40 is about $400,000 and that doesn’t include merchandising – tshirts and donations.. do the math.”
