Before we apply for 501(c)(3) status we first need to know if the mentoring model is a good idea. We (Rick and Rebecca) know a lot about Black history and culture from years of reading and experience with M.U.S.T.. We know very little about the foster care system, however. Until we determine if the idea will work we will serve under a fiscal sponsor. When we first started M.U.S.T. we used an organization called New Horizon’s as our fiscal sponsor. We are using them again until we determine if is necessary to start a full 501(c)(3) again.
We get this question a lot. We love M.U.S.T.! It is our baby. Actually, it is more like our teenager. It is the natural time for us/it to move out on its own. Kelvin Washington is an excellent leader and M.U.S.T. is in great hands. We never envisioned leading M.U.S.T. long term and always dreamed of handing it off to leadership that accurately reflects those it serves. Rick will remain very involved in M.U.S.T. through its board in the years to come.
