What is a nonprofit?
Non-profit organizations operate and are maintained to serve a public good. Any net earnings by a not-for-profit organization are used by the organization for the purposes of which it was established.
No one “owns” DoveLewis and no one makes a profit from our success. The board of directors is made up of unpaid volunteers, but our staff is paid. DoveLewis charges for its medical services to cover the costs of ER and ICU medicine. Any net earnings by DoveLewis are used to pursue the organizational goal of providing exceptional animal emergency and critical care services. This could include buying new medical equipment.
DoveLewis’ Federal Tax ID number is 93-0621534.
