Are you looking for a way to connect with a Central Texas nonprofit organization? AGE of Central Texas is the only authorized adult day care provider in the area, offering a wide range of services to people across the aging spectrum. From seminars for caregivers to support groups and free equipment loans, AGE of Central Texas is dedicated to helping people get the most out of every stage of adult life. To be exempt, a non-profit organization must meet certain requirements and file a request with the Internal Revenue Service and the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. AGE of Central Texas was founded in 1986 as “Austin Groups for the Elderly” by Bert Kruger Smith and Willie Kocurek.
The organization has since grown to become an incubator for emerging and small non-profit organizations that provide a wide variety of services to young people, people with disabilities, families and people with cancer, as well as older adults. If you need help understanding the requirements for non-profit organizations or have questions about filing a request with the Internal Revenue Service or the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, you can review the Comptroller's FAQs or contact the Comptroller's Exempt Organizations Section by phone at (800) 531-5441 or (51) 463-4600 or by email. AGE of Central Texas also collaborates with dozens of other non-profit organizations in Austin, in part by providing referrals and information on locally available services through the Resource & Information Center and by providing free mobility and safety equipment to people through other agencies that provide services to older adults. Additionally, Texas CBAR is a state lawyer referral program that provides free legal help to eligible non-profit groups that cannot otherwise afford legal services. Art Perez, the oldest employee of the Central Texas Food Bank, reflects on the history of CTFB and the exciting innovations that are taking place under the new leadership. The Act addresses a limited number of important issues related to non-profit associations, namely, the authority of the non-profit association to acquire, maintain and transfer property on its own behalf; the authority to sue and be sued as an independent legal entity; and the contractual and tort liability of the officers of an association and its members.
