About the Company and its People

Background

US Constitution Project, Inc. a nonprofit Virginia corporation, was chartered on May 13, 2014 and received 501(c)(3) approval on July 31. The directors and officers are Norris S. Goff of Linden, VA, director, President and Treasurer; Bill Sage of Allegan, Michigan, director and Vice President; and Dolores Stottlemeyer of Winchester, Virginia, director and Secretary.

Having no prior experience with nonprofit organizations, we engaged BizCentral USA (www.bizcentralusa.com) to produce the IRS application. We were pleased with their work, initially because they fairly represented our objectives (which are stated at the top of the home page) and secondly because IRS approved the application in less than two months.

Progress Our initial plans, including the IRS application, did not mention the documentary The Hijacking of America®, which is now a registered trademark. Our home page details the events that led to current plans.
