We welcome associated writers; and very much appreciate both donations of research materials and financial contributions to help finance us in our mission which seeks neither glory or profit. We have not received nor are pending any financial grants from federal, state, or local government entities nor foundations: excepting $10,000 several years ago from the private foundation established by a now deceased cousin, Harold Martin.
In fact, the founders are also the principal donors with help from friends and relatives who share our vision of using the internet for enlightenment and education of youth generations among "the least of us."
As applicable, this site also includes links to our other websites and associates that reflect our vision for helping "the least of us." Financial contributions to us are tax deductible by the donor.
You may send donations by check payable to Brady Enterprise Association, Inc. at our mailing address: P.O. Box 14455 (Plum), Pittsburgh, PA. 15239-9998.
For information about the IRS Determination Letter pursuant their regulation 501(3)c regarding tax-deductions available to donors, see IRS Determination page below.

Our Letter Dated: February 1999
Addendum Applies: No
This modifies our letter of the above date in which we stated that you would be treated as an organization that is not a private foundation until the expiration of your advance ruling period.
Your exempt status under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization described in section 501(c)(3) is still in effect. Based on the information you submitted, we have determined that you are not a private foundation within the meaning of section 509(a) of the Code because you are an organization of the type described in section 509(a) (I/ and 170 (b) (1) (A) (vi) .
Grantors and contributors may rely on this determination unless the Internal Revenue Service publishes notice to the contrary. However, if you lose your section 509 (a) (!) status, a grantor or contributor may not rely on this determination if he or she was in part responsible for, or was aware of, the act or failure to act, or the substantial or material change on the part of the organization that resulted in your loss of such status, or if he or she acquired knowledge that the internal Revenue Service had given notice that you would no longer be classified as a section 509(a) (l) organization.
You are required to make your annual information return, Form 990 or Form 990-EZ, available for public inspection for three years after the later of the due date of the return or the date the return is filed. You are also required to make available for public inspection your exemption application, any supporting documents, and your exemption letter. Copies of these documents are also required to be provided to any individual upon written or in person request without charge other than reasonable fees for copying and postage.
You may fulfill this requirement by placing these documents on the Internet. Penalties may be imposed for failure to comply with these requirements. Additional information is available in Publication 557, Tax-Exempt Status for Your Organization, or you may call our toll free number shown above.
If we have indicated in the heading of this letter that an addendum applies, the addendum enclosed is an integral part of this letter.
Because this letter could help resolve any questions about your private foundation status, please keep it in your permanent records.
If you have any questions, please contact the person whose name and telephone number are shown above.
