now that you have your tools
Now that you have your tools…

Let’s learn some terminology:

501 c 4
501(c)(4)

Non- Profit Organization that does NOT have to pay taxes on money received.

slide11

That means you have a tax exempt status with IRS as a Non-Profit Organization and do not have to pay taxes on money received.

Donating to a 501(c)(4) does NOT allow the donor to write-off the donation to an Exchange Club. (There are a few exceptions, but Exchange Clubs do not fall within those IRS guidelines.)

You are not allowed to participate in or intervene with any political activity to promote any candidate or opposing candidate.

501 c 3 organization
501(c)(3)Organization

Very few Exchange Clubs are this type of organization. There are a few differences from the 501(c)(4)

slide13

Donations are a tax write-off to the donor in most cases

  • Must provide donor with a receipt for the amount of donation or a receipt for the value of the donation if the donation is at least $25.
  • Must be a corporation, fund, foundation or community chest and follow rules of these types of organizations.
