Here's why:

  1. Coven Oldenwilde is a respected, federally recognized 501 (c)(3) Wiccan religious nonprofit listed on Guidestar. (Our EIN and annual financial report are available upon request.)
  2. Covens charge no tithes or dues. Churches do, and also qualify for millions of dollars in grants from foundations that exclusively support Christian (or Jewish, or Muslim) charitable works. There are NO grants or foundations that support Pagans or Wiccans. (And all non-religious foundations exclude religious groups from their grant programs!)
