STATE AND FEDERAL RECOGNITION
Overseas Resource Link has received federal and state recognition as a tax exempt 501(c)3 non profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of California. All contributions are tax exempt. In compliance with its non profit status, ORL is required to file an Annual Return of Organizations Exempt from Income Tax (IRS Form 990) and a California Exempt Organization Annual Information Return (California Form 199). These reports that contain detailed income and expenditure information are available for public inspection.

FUNDING OF OPERATIONAL EXPENSE
Those contributions made to the organization an earmarked exclusively for the support of the relief efforts in Swaziland will be forwarded to partner recipient programs in that country. Administrative costs associated with grant research, grant preparation and submission, the disbursement of awarded grant funding, direct fundraising activities, general operational expenses and required bookkeeping and accounting oversight will be paid from non-designated funds raised by Overseas Resource Link in support of overseas relief activities. Every effort will be made to insure that these administrative costs are kept to a minimum and will not exceed what is reasonable and customary for such services.

PARTNERSHIPS
Advocates

Contributions directed to specific partner recipient programs in Swaziland will be forwarded directly to those programs. Partner Advocates are those who make a monthly commitment to support the overall relief effort in Swaziland. Partner Advocates will receive a copy of the organization’s Newslink newsletter detailing the ongoing work in Swaziland and general information regarding the worldwide response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Receipts will be provided for all contributions.

Short or Long Term Service in Africa

ORL will assist you with your travel arrangements and coordinate your stay and utilization while in Swaziland. A former British protectorate, the predominant language spoken in Swaziland is English. The Swazi people are warm and hospitable and you will be forever changed for having given your time and talents to those in need.
