Cybersmile Awarded Official Non-Profit Status In The U.S With New 501(c)3 Registration

Although Cybersmile has been supporting internet users and gamers around the world since 2010, being native to the U.S creates a huge amount of new opportunities.

Since 2010, Cybersmile have been helping people from all over the world through our educational, advisory and anti-cyberbullying/online abuse support programs. From the very beginning we have made huge strides forward in our mission to engage with, support and educate digital citizens irrespective of where they are located on the planet.

Our work over the last few years has seen us expand our reach and influence across the globe, most successfully in the U.S, where our partnerships with global corporations such as Intel and Twitter have enabled us to amplify our message to millions of U.S citizens.

In recognition of the public benefit The Cybersmile Foundation brings to the U.S, and to people all over the world we have been officially granted 501(c)3 status – which means Cybersmile is now officially a U.S tax exempt non-profit organization as well as retaining it’s U.K registered charity status.

“Being granted official non-profit status in the U.S is an extremely proud achievement for everybody at Cybersmile and completely validates our approach to what is a truly global issue. From the start, the U.S has totally embraced our mission for change and our new tax exempt status makes us much more accessible to corporations and organizations who want to support our work. This is fantastic news for Cybersmile and for any U.S citizens who need access to our resources.”

Scott Freeman, CEO, The Cybersmile Foundation

This is of course great news for anybody affected by online abuse in the U.S but also for all our supporters and potential corporate partners in the U.S who can now take full advantage of our new tax exempt non-profit status and make tax-deductible donations and gifts – a greater Cybersmile presence on the ground right the way across the U.S can be expected too! Thank you all so much for your support; we couldn’t have done it without you!
