Granted 501(c)(3) Status By the United States Government.
Zamani Foundation, an international humanitarian organization, today
announced it has been granted 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status by the US
Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS has classified the Zamani
Foundation as a public charity, which means that contributions to
the organization are tax exempt; this is often a requirement to
qualify for foundation grants and to receive funding from donors.
Mr. Mustafa Zamani founded the
Zamani Foundation. An entrepreneur of Afghan descent, Mr. Zamani is
committed to providing shelter, tools of education and teaching
trade skills to children in indigent communities of the most
underprivileged countries ravaged by poverty and civil war. Along
with education and trade school training, the foundation provides
homes for orphans with other related developmental opportunities for
disadvantaged youth. The nascent start of the foundation was
established in 1998 with the creation of the Zamani Computer
Institute for Afghan refugees in Peshawar, Pakistan.
Mr. Zamani believes "Our mission
is educating youth for a life of opportunity and hope. The
foundation will create long-term, positive change in the lives of
children in need in the Afghanistan and around the world. My hope is
that children will grow up educated, safe, healthy and able to
thrive in an increasingly global economy."
"Receiving 501(c)(3) status was
critical for our development as it provides the possibility for
others to contribute to our work, alleviating child suffering in
war-torn and under-developed countries," Mr. Zamani also noted.
Giving back and helping
disadvantaged children is the basic design for which the foundation
was formed. While the current focus of the foundation is on the
Afghanistan region, the foundation is a global organization focused
on providing education and opportunities to the disadvantaged
children of the poorest communities of the world.
