TAG Foundation, the charitable foundation of TAGLaw® and TIAG®, contributed $5,000 to the charity ShelterBox USA during the alliances' recent international conferences in San Francisco. ShelterBox provides emergency supplies to survivors of disasters around the world.
“TAGLaw and TIAG are proud to offer this donation to ShelterBox on behalf of TAG Foundation,” said Bob Sattin, the president of the two alliances, “We began supporting ShelterBox in the wake of the tsunami that struck Fukushima, Japan. They impressed us as a charity that offered critical, life-saving help to the people most affected by a disaster. We are pleased to continue this relationship with ShelterBox by giving this donation.”
John Keane, a ShelterBox Director, spoke to the TAGLaw and TIAG members about ShelterBox’s recent activities so members could see how their contributions were being used to help people around the world. “On behalf of ShelterBox, I would like to thank the members of TAGLaw and TIAG for their generosity. Their contributions have and will help us save lives when a disaster strikes an area.” said Keane.
TAG Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation for TAGLaw and The International Accounting Group (TIAG). TAG Foundation was started formally in 2010 with a mission to help individuals around the world who have been affected by a major disaster. TAGLaw’s and TIAG’s charitable tradition began in 2001, when members banded together to assist the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Since that time, major donations were given to the victims of the tsunami in Indonesia and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2005. Since the start of TAG Foundation, donations have been made to help the 2010 flood victims in Pakistan and the 2011 victims of the tsunami in Fukushima, Japan.
The TAG Foundation has been approved as exempt from taxation under §501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
