Structure

2009: Reach Out Kansas Inc. (ROK) is granted the IRS designation of public charity and therefore can offer tax receipts for any amount given to the organization.

2015: NAVO Inc. becomes an affiliate of ROK. This means that NAVO can act as a public charity without the burden of administrative fees. In support of NAVO’s mission, ROK has generously offered to carry all administrative fees involved in financial transactions.

100% of funds submitted to ROK for NAVO benefits NAVO. Because of this structure, any amount given to NAVO will be used towards NAVO’s artistic expenses (and not administrative expenses).
