About the PBCers Organization
The PBCers Organization is a tax exempt public charity under section 501 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization described in section 501 (c) (3). One-hundred percent (100%) of all donations received are donated to PBC education or research, whichever fund is specified by the donor. PBCers Organization overhead expenses and many of the project/events are covered by corporate grants.
The PBCers Organization is an online organization that works mainly through personal and committee e-mail, Facebook pages, Yahoo Groups and telephone calls when needed. Members of the executive committee maintain the PBCers internet website (pbcers.org), Facebook pages, and e-mail PBC Daily Digest. We also organize fundraising projects, fun-runs/walks, educational meetings, medical conference nonprofit booths, National PBC patient conferences and other advocacy projects we feel are helpful to our organization and members.
The PBCers Organization is operated and maintained by volunteers. There are no paid board directors, committee members, moderators or other volunteers. The day-to-day operations are handled by the executive committee and moderators with the boards approval.
