Huge Victory … ZERO Application Fee!!!

Published

on

After weeks and weeks of us calling out #FireChadConnelly & (not so) Exceptional SC’s  insane announcement about a $60 Application Fee … literally the worst idea ever … last week they sent out an email announcing that there will NOT be an application fee!!! 

YESSSS! This is a huge victory for our families! 

QUESTION IS … “Who” at Exceptional SC thought this $60 fee was a good idea in the first place?!?!?!

YOUR CALLS MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!!!:  Let’s use this as an example that when we stand up for what is right … we win!!!

Yes, MANY of you contacted your legislators … and complained about the whole situation … including the application fee idea. Do you think #FireChadConnelly would have changed his mind if it was not for the pressure he got from YOU (and legislators)? We don’t think so!

Keep the pressure on … keep calling your legislators … keep sharing your stories and how this recent lack of funding has affected your family and your school.

NOW: Application Window OPENS July 1 @ Noon!!!:  Yep … Nobody bought the claim that the online application window was delayed from May 1st, to July 1st because of COVID-19.  But, whatever … the good news is that the the Application Window OPENS Wednesday, July 1st @ NOON!!!

Everyone has a FULL TWO MONTHS to apply as the Application Window does not close until August 31st @ 5PM!!!  (However … the BAD NEWS … if applications don’t close until August 31st … when are they going to announce / fund scholarships???)

NO RUSH …NOT First Come / First Served!!!

We will be providing more information on Wednesday … but get ready to … APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!!!

WARNING:  Be cautious though  … and plan accordingly! Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst.  If you believe as we do that the past results are an indication of what we should be expecting in the future … the funding most likely will be extremely limited.

But … at least it doesn’t cost you anything to apply!!!

Exceptional SC Legal Status EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Published

on

Seriously … can this be happening again??? 

Granted, I am a tax attorney / CPA … so I think about these things all the time … and one of the VERY FIRST THINGS they teach us “tax people” is BEFORE YOUR CLIENT DONATES TO A NON-PROFIT … check their legal status.  If not all in order, and you let your client donate … it could be LEGAL MALPRACTICE!!!

First you check that the non-profit is actually an IRS approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit … and then you check the Secretary of State’s Office to verify the organization’s legal status is current.

(not so) Exceptional SCs Status?  EXPIRED … AGAIN!!!

Why, Why, Why???  Remember this from JANUARY 2020 … we mocked the incompetency back then … but no, the #FireTheBoard!!! at (not so) Exceptional SC let their legal status expire AGAIN!!! 

Board Malpractice!!!

Legal Status Expired in January 2020 & AGAIN in December 2020

This says it all … WE know how to FIX ALL OF THIS … but the (not so) Exceptional SC Board won’t do anything … won’t talk … won’t meet … just blame others.  STOP THE INSANITY!!!!

“Only” $63,115 Raised in November!!!

Published

on

Well, it is not getting any better.  (not so) Exceptional SC only raised $63,114.78 in November … another huge FAILURE!!!

In November 2019 … as bad as that year was … they raised $427,000. 

Donors have ZERO confidence in the Board at (not so) Exceptional SC … especially after they apparently let the now fired executive director Chad Connelly EMBEZZEL MONEY from the organization … from kids scholarships … and still trying to sweep it under the rug. 

Would you donate to these guys … or as a CPA tell your clients to donate to them?!?!?  It is NEVER going to get better with (not so) Exceptional SC!!!

It is not getting better folks … and the BOARD at (not so) Exceptional SC is still silent.
