Baysave Association has completed federal 501 (c )(3) charity and a New Jersey state registered charity for the year ended December 31, 2019.
This is sooner in the year than most charities file their information returns and annual registration, but I like to get this one finished before handling the annual filings for my more complicated nonprofit clients.
The best way to find information about a New Jersey charity is to use the Division of Consumer Affairs web site. The site includes both federal and state filings but it takes a while for them to update the most recent years.
Last year Baysave became joined as an Xspero charity beneficiary and promoter after introduction through the Millville Chamber of Commerce and the Vineland Chamber of Commerce. In short, Xpero is a cell phone based service that promotes local businesses and financially supports local nonprofit organizations. I found that Xspero is a great business with strong people and a great concept. But I suspected that it would take them a long time to reach ‘critical mass’. Yesterday Xpero announced that their network has grown to 120 local merchants. We see that many of our local favorite merchants are included.
We are asking you to please do two things:
Download the Xspero app on your phone and name Baysave as your designated charity.
Check out the list of merchants and make a $25 purchase on your phone in advance of your visit.
This was their email announcement yesterday:
“XsperoTM is growing everyday thanks to supporters like you! We now have more than 120 south jersey businesses in the Xspero Network!
Don’t forget to shop within the Xspero Network, because 20%
of your Xspero purchases goes to Baysave Corporation!
Finding new favorite restaurants, salons, auto mechanics,
and more are an added bonus to making purchases you can feel good about!
Check out our updated list of great Xspero Merchants below
and don’t forget to turn your phone’s notifications to on and your location
sensor to always allow in order to get reminders to use Xspero when you’re at
or near one of these excellent local merchants!
