Apple Blossom Festival Gets Nonprofit Designation

3 April 2019 Shenandoah County Front Royal/Warren County Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News

The Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival has announced that it has officially been granted full 501(c)(3) nonprofit status by the Internal Revenue Service.

The news came from current Festival President Barry Carper last week, and is the result of an effort begun by former Festival President Tom Scully in 2010 and continued by presidents of the organization since. In previous years, the festival has held a 501(c)(4) “not-for-profit” designation, and was classified as a community-service-type organization. This new designation allows the festival to accept contributions from individuals and businesses, as well as bequests from estates and trusts, all of which will be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
