Be A Grouper!INGRoup is a 501(3)c nonprofit corporation. Incorporating in 2008 allowed INGRoup to be an independent entity. Being independent also means that INGRoup must absorb its operating costs (e.g., insurance, tax preparation, credit card processing, association awards) and costs associated with the annual conference (e.g., deposits for vendors). As recommended for all nonprofits, INGRoup should maintain a reserve. Your INGRoup membership helps to sustain the operating costs of the association, but we must also build our reserves.Please consider making a contribution to INGRoup - show your support for the association and to help us maintain financial health. Donors will be recognized in the annual INGRoup conference program.
