IRS reinstates Center for the Arts’ status as nonprofit

JACKSON, Wyo. – Center for the Arts announced today that its 501(c)(3) status was officially reinstated in full by the IRS effective October 24, 2019. The reinstatement is retroactive back to the date of revocation: March 11, 2019.

“I am grateful to The Center’s staff and board, the entire Jackson community, and especially, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole for their steadfast support during this process,” said David J. Rothman, president and CEO of The Center. “We couldn’t have done it without them all.”

The revocation period did not affect Old Bill’s giving or any other nonprofit provisions from the Community Foundation. Outgoing president Katharine Conover said her organization’s support never wavered as the Community Foundation assisted The Center in any way they could.

Rothman said community support of The Center appears stronger than ever with record-breaking attendance during last summer’s Center Presents season, including the sold-out benefit with The Avett Brothers, and a strong showing during the Old Bill’s giving season.
