A non-profit organization is granted an exemption from certain taxes by the Internal Revenue Service under
Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code.
IRC Section 501(c)(3) Organization: This is an organization that is organized and
operated exclusively for one or more of the following purposes: charitable, religious,
educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering national or
international amateur sports competition (but only if none of its activities involve
providing athletic facilities or equipment), or the prevention of cruelty to animals.
To qualify, the organization must be a corporation, community chest, fund, or foundation.
A trust is a fund or foundation and will qualify. However, an individual or a
partnership will not qualify.
