What Is a 501(c)(3) Organization? The U.S. Internal Revenue Code (IRC) recognizes 501(c) (3) as organizations that meet requirements for tax exemption from federal income Taxation.
This means any donations directed to the organization are tax-deductible. All organizations that are eligible for 501(c)(3) status fall under the following three categories
- Private Foundations
All the rules for such foundations are regulated by the U.S. Treasury through the IRS.
