Bennett’s Village receives 501(c)(3) status

501(c)(3) in purple letters

Big news! Bennett’s Village has received its own 501(c)(3) status. We’re so grateful to The Arc of the Piedmont for their fiscal sponsorship for the first few years of our organization. And now, as our dreams to build a place where ALL can play have grown, so has our need to be our own legal entity.

What does this change mean? 501(c)(3) status allows Bennett’s Village to directly apply for grants and other funding that we might not be eligible for without our own designation. It also allows for tax-deductible contributions to be made directly to Bennett’s Village rather than funneled through the Arc of the Piedmont.

Our mission remains the same, but any mailed donations will need to be written out to Bennett’s Village directly and sent to our address:
