The Internal Revenue Service has approved YVT’s application for non-profit 501 (c) (3) status. This means all donations to YVT are fully tax deductible. This comes at a good time because YVT is experiencing a budget shortfall due to greatly increased insurance costs. All donations are especially welcome at this time.

The City of Yakima has applied to U.S. Senator Patty Murray for 2.5 million dollars to fund the purchase of the Carbarn property and turn it into a first class railroad museum. Senator Murray needs to be informed about the worthiness of saving the YVT carbarn property. You can call her at (202) 224-2621 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org and give her your opinions. Phone calls tend to be more effective than e-mails.
