The Renslow Charitable Foundation is proud to announce to the community the approval of our 501c3 application with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.

Our Non-Profit tax status has been granted!

The Renslow Charitable Foundation was created by Chuck Renslow for the sole purpose to use generated net revenues from International Mr. Leather–International Mr. Bootblack each year as a direct funding source to The Leather Archives and Museum (LA&M). Having now gained status as a 501c3 organization the Trust is now able to save on expenses (taxes) which helps potentially increase the annual contribution to the LA&M.

While we wait on same result from the State of Illinois, which is in the final stages of registration, we wanted to share this wonderful news immediately.

The Foundation would also like to use this opportunity to commend and thank the Executive Staff of IML–IMBB who have been tirelessly working with all event partners and stakeholders in finalizing plans for a rescheduled date for IML-IMBB weekend. An announcement about a planned new date for this year is expected in the next few days.

For additional updates about IML–IMBB, please watch our social media channels as well as visit our website at www.imrl.com.

Be safe.
