When developing a ReadyChurch or ReadyCity, it is vital that you have your own 501(c) 3 to channel funds that will be donated to any responses that you do in your church or city. Especially, when developing a ReadyCity, it can be challenging to find an organization that has or is willing to use their 501(c)3 status for this purpose.
