Extended Trade Services, Programs and others -
WTC Tampa specializes in fostering entrepreneurship, growth and trade domestic and internationally. We also provide back to our community as a reflection of our success because we believe everyone should have equal access to such opportunities.
Alongside our usual trade services and programs, WTC Tampa recognizes additional efforts from other technology partners and affiliates. While our partners and affiliates collaborate with us, they maintain the right to act independently as an outside entity. If such a partner or affiliate is interested in providing philanthropic services under the WTC Tampa name, then they must execute a system that permits them to designate it as a Non-Profit endeavor. Even after being vetted, we require all partners and affiliates while "Doing Business As" any philanthropic work to file quarterly performance activities with the World Trade Center of Tampa Bay board members and legal team to maintain that all activity whether project based or business model based be under a Non-Profit designation. Other third parties interested in doing business with a niche, non-profit endeavor from our suite of partners and affiliates must also be a 501(c)(3) classification to qualify for requested programs and services.
You (the 3rd party, interested in collaborating with a partner or affiliate) must provide proof of the following details:
- Entity registration
- Tax ID or EIN
- Valid 501(c)(3) designation
Once such details are vetted by the World Trade Center of Tampa board members and legal team, a philanthropic program can further commence. Any 501(c)(3) designation misrepresentation from interested 3rd Parties, partners and affiliates could result in a penalty or legal action.
