About Our Organization: The Bay Shore High School Alumni Association was officially incorporated in March of 1998 as a "Not for Profit" Corporation. In 2002 it applied for and was granted Section 501 (c)(3) "Charity" status by the Internal Revenue Service.
Donors may deduct contributions as provided in section 170 of the IRS Code. Bequests, legacies, devises, transfers, or gifts made to our Association are deductible for federal estate and gift tax purposes if they meet the applicable provisions of Code sections 2055, 2106, and 2522
Contribution deductions are allowable to donors only to the extent that their contributions are gifts, with no consideration received. Ticket purchases and similar payments in conjunction with fundraising events may not necessarily qualify as deductible contributions, depending on the circumstances. See Revenue ruling 67-246 in Cumulative Bulletin 1967-2, which sets forth guidelines regarding the deductibility, as charitable contributions, of payments made by taxpayers for admission to or other participation in fundraising activities for charity.
Alumni Association dues are $20.00 per year, or $100.00 for lifetime membership. All checks should be made out to the "Bay Shore High School Alumni Association, Inc."
About Our Relationships: The BSHS Alumni
Association is a community organization that has a long lasting, close, working
relationship with the Bay Shore School District. Alumni Association meetings
are held on the first Tuesday of most months from 7:30pm - 9:00pm, at the Bay Shore Middle School OIS conference room. All school / community minded individuals are invited to attend. You do not have to be a Bay Shore alumnus to attend or to be involved. We can be contacted through our post office box address or through the Office of School-Community Services located in the Bay Shore Middle School (631-968-1251).
All school employees, community residents, officers, and alumni who participate in our association do so on a community service basis. There are no paid members in our organization.
