                      Dear Applicant:

We are pleased to inform you that upon review of your application for tax
exempt status we have determined that you are exempt from Federal income tax
under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Contributions to you are
deductible under section 170 of the Code.  You are also qualified to receive
tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106
or 2522 of the Code.   Because this letter could help resolve any questions
regarding your exempt status, you should keep it in your permanent records.

Organizations exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Code are further classified
as either public charities or private foundations.   During your advance ruling
period, you will be treated as a public charity.   Your advance ruling period begins
with the effective date of your exemption and ends with advance ruling
ending date shown in the heading of the letter.

Shortly before the end of your advance ruling period, we will send you Form
8734, Support Schedule for Advance Ruling Period.   You will have 90 days after
the end of your advance ruling period to return the completed form.   We will
then notify you, in writing, about your public charity status.

Please see enclosed information for Exempt Organizations Under Section
501(c)(3) for some helpful information about your responsibilities as an exempt

If you distribute funds to individuals, you should keep case histories showing
the recipient's name and address; the purpose of the award; the manner of
selection; and the relationship of the recipient to any of your officers,
directors, trustees, members, or major contributors.
