MOMS was founded in Hartford Connecticut in September 2006 for the purpose of helping needy mothers with young children locally and worldwide. MOMS is an all-volunteer private foundation that files annually IRS Form 990PF. It has no paid staff and no expenses. Officers and Directors volunteer their services and donate all necessities. One hundred percent of all contributions to MOMS are used to advance its goal. MOMS is registered with the Internal Revenue Service (EIN 03-0603732) and the Connecticut Secretary of State and Department of Revenue Service as a family foundation exempt from Federal income tax under section 501c of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to MOMS are tax-deductible under section 170 of that code.
According to the charity watchdog, Charity Navigator, volunteer agencies are rare: “Although there are few actual volunteer CEOs that receive no pay, the current process by which we collect data precludes us from identifying which charities have unpaid CEOs versus those that simply failed to report compensation on their Form 990” (Charity Navigator, “2014 Charity CEO Compensation Study October 2014” p. 15). MOMS doesn’t fail to report anything. Our staff is all-volunteer.
