SVGLS Gets Tax-Exempt, Nonprofit Organization Status
The Board of Directors of the Sacramento Valley Gay & Lesbian Softball League (SGVLS) reported during its regular business meeting on May 8 that the Internal Revenue Service has approved its application for 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit organization status.
“This is a huge milestone for SVGLS that so many people have been working for years to achieve,” said Edward Hamilton, the Commissioner of the SGVLS. “This new 501 (c)(3) status will better enable us to foster more opportunities to play organized softball in a safe and inclusive environment for LGBT people. Equally important, it will also empower the league to build stronger partnerships with community organizations that support and provide critical services to LGBT people in our community.”

Aging and Other Fun Thoughts
Commentary by Bob Scrivano and Gary Lieberman
Every day in Sacramento, and the rest of California, gay and lesbian individuals struggle with difficult and frustrating problems, both political and personal. This discussion is intended to be personal.
For years we have seen an aging LGBT population forced to deal with financial and estate planning issues for which they have not always been prepared. Who gets my stuff? Who can, and will, make decisions for me if I cannot? Where will I go? Can I lose my property? Have I ignored the changes that come with aging?
